We have compiled "Language Testing" (URL:

This web page includes information and links to resources such as
materials in the TESL-L archives, organizations and universities,
mailing lists, publications, English language tests used
internationally, and non-English language tests.

We also included information about organizations that administer
English language tests, professional organizations related to language
testing, and universities which have special projects or activities
related to language testing. We included www sites of various English
language tests, such as Cambridge, IELTS, TOEFL, and TOEIC.

Message 2: JOURNAL OF SOCIOLINGUISTICS

Date: Wed, 17 Jul 1996 10:24:00 GMT
From: Barham Emma <EBarhamBlackwellPublishers.co.uk>
Subject: JOURNAL OF SOCIOLINGUISTICS

Announcing an important new journal, launching in February 1997:

JOURNAL OF SOCIOLINGUISTICS

Edited by Nikolas Coupland and Allan Bell

* 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 sociolinguistics 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.

3 issues a year, published in: February, June and October
