ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS, published twice a year, is an
international journal which focuses on the description of the English
language within the framework of contemporary linguistics. The
journal is concerned equally with the synchronic and the diachronic
aspects of English language studies and will publish articles of the
highest quality which make a substantial contribution to our
understanding of the structure and development of the English language
and which are informed by a knowledge and appreciation of linguistic

ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS will carry articles and short
discussion papers or squibs on all core aspects of English from its
beginnings to the present day, including syntax, morphology,
phonology, semantics, pragmatics, corpus linguistics and lexis. There
will also be a major review section including from time to time
articles that give an overview of current research in particular
specialist areas. From time to time an issue will be devoted to a
special topic, when a guest editor will be invited to commission
articles from leading specialists in the field.

A number of papers have been commissioned, and we invite contributions
