By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

Language Under Discussion

Call Information:
Language Under Discussion has just published a new issue with the focus article ''Linguistic structure: A plausible theory'', by Sydney Lamb:[]=30.

The issue remains open for one year so that readers may send in discussion notes in response to Lamb's focus article. Notes accepted for publication after peer review will be published in the same issue; Lamb will then close the issue with a response to the published notes. We encourage you to take part in the discussion!

We also invite you to submit articles dealing with major conceptual questions about language as such for publication as focus articles in the journal. Discussion notes responding to the debate in currently open issues are also welcome (vol. 3(1) and vol.4(1),

Language Under Discussion is an open-access peer-reviewed journal devoted to promoting open-minded debate on central questions in the study of language, from all relevant disciplinary and theoretical perspectives. For information on our editorial board and our editorial policy, please see:
