Lengua y Migración (Language and Migration) is a journal born for the analysis of the linguistic realities, emergent from the migratory situations; situations of displacement of population from one place to another. The objective of this publication is to pay attention, in a transverse way, to any aspect of the human migrations related to languages implied in it and the communicative habits of people and societies affected by migrations. The works are published in English and Spanish and are destined to the consultation by the international scientific community.
This journal tries to gather original, theoretical, empirical, and methodological articles analyzing the linguistic and communicative reality of immigration in the reception communities, taking care of the social and linguistic elements that appear in the sociolinguistic integration development, including the processes of second languages acquisition by immigrants. We are interested in sociolinguistic and sociological phenomena related to migratory processes in any region or community around the world, as well as in those processes implying speakers of different languages or even the same language.
Linguistic specialties analyzed in Lengua y Migración (Language and Migration) are very diverse: articles about sociolinguistics and sociology of the language are welcomed, studies of theoretical or descriptive linguistics, pragmatics, discourse analyses, conversational analyses, ethno and anthropo-linguistics, and also other matters interested in the use of the language in migration contexts. Articles interested in language learning and teaching, contrastive linguistics, and language contact in those same contexts are of a special interest for us. In the same way, this journal leaves space for intercultural and cross-cultural analyses as long as they have migrations as their study object.
