Language Dynamics and Change (LDC) is now accepting papers for the second
issue of Volume 1. Manuscripts can be submitted for review via Editorial
Manager at http://www.editorialmanager.com/ldc/.

Language Dynamics and Change is an international peer-reviewed journal that
covers both new and traditional aspects of the study of language change.
Work on any language or language family is welcomed, as long as it bears on
topics that are also of theoretical interest. A particular focus is on new
developments in the field arising from the accumulation of extensive
databases of dialect variation and typological distributions, spoken
corpora, parallel texts, and comparative lexicons, which allow for the
application of new types of quantitative approaches to diachronic
linguistics. Moreover, the journal will serve as an outlet for increasingly
important interdisciplinary work on such topics as the evolution of
language, archaeology and linguistics ('archaeolinguistics'), human genetic
and linguistic prehistory, and the computational modeling of language dynamics.

The following articles are to be published in the first issue:

-Larry M. Hyman, The Macro-Sudan Belt and Niger-Congo Reconstruction

-Brigitte Pakendorf, Koen Bostoen & Cesare de Filippo, Molecular
Perspectives on the Bantu Expansion: A Synthesis

-Lydia Steiner, Peter F. Stadler & Michael Cysouw, A Pipeline for
Computational Historical Linguistics

-Paul Huff & Deryle Lonsdale, Positing Language Relationships Using ALINE

-Book review: The Evolution of Language by W. Tecumseh Fitch, Reviewed by
Tao Gong & Qiang Wang

Language Dynamics and Change is now in FastTrack (Advanced Online
Publishing). This service ensures that accepted articles are available
online shortly after proof correction, i.e., in advance of the journal
issue in which they are published. FastTrack articles have a DOI (Digital
Object Identifier) number which can be used for reference purposes.
