First issue: February 1997

The Journal of Sociolinguistics is a new international forum for leading
research on language and society. It is open to both established and
innovative approaches to sociolinguistic research.

The Journal promotes sociolinguistics as a thoroughly linguistic and
thoroughly social-scientific endeavour. The linguistic and the social will
both be present in all contributions.

The Journal will be hospitable to linguistic analyses which range from the
micro to the macro, from the quantitative study of phonological variables to
discourse analysis of texts.

Contributions from the ethnographic, variationist and sociology of language
traditions are welcomed, as are papers from the social psychology of
language, anthropological linguistics, critical discourse analysis, language
and gender studies, pragmatics and conversational analysis.

The Journal will publish research which illuminates linguistic and
communication processes, as well as applying and developing models of
society and social processes. Language will be treated
as not only a reflection of society but as itself constituting much of the
character of social life.

Fresh approaches to the field will be encouraged through publication of
commissioned articles, thematic issues, topical forums, and the opportunity
for debate among contributors.

The Journal will explicitly promote the building and critique of
sociolinguistic theory and encourage the application of recent developments
in social theory to linguistic data and issues.
