Northwest Journal of Linguistics
Special volume on North Wakashan

The Northwest Journal of Linguistics (NWJL) respectfully requests articles on any aspect of the documentation and analysis of the North Wakashan languages - namely, Haisla-Henaksiala (X̄a'islak̓ala-X̄enaksialak̓ala), Oowekyala (W̓uik̓ala), Heiltsuk (Háiłzaqvḷa), and Kwak'wala (Bak̓wa̱mk̓ala). Submissions will be subject to review, and published as issues of a special thematic volume of NWJL.

North Wakashan languages have been spoken for millennia along the coast of what is now British Columbia, and have attracted the attention of linguists and anthropologists since the pioneering work of Franz Boas at the turn of the twentieth century. Yet in the hundred or so years since then, research on North Wakashan has been sporadic. Now, like most aboriginal languages of British Columbia, all four North Wakashan languages are critically endangered, while the pace of language revitalization efforts is at a new high, making such research all the more urgent.

NWJL therefore seeks to address the need for continuing study of North Wakashan languages by encouraging and supporting new work on them. Articles may be concerned with any aspect of language documentation or analysis, including the revitalization of North Wakashan languages, the preservation of traditional linguistic knowledge, and the scientific study of human language. We encourage submissions from community members, academic linguists, and collaborations between them. We also encourage articles that include audio or video. However, please note that we are unable to publish purely pedagogical works that present already published data with no new analysis.

There is no formal deadline, but contributors who wish to be included in the special volume should submit as soon as possible. Articles will be published as they are received and reviewed.

NWJL is a free, online, peer-reviewed journal. Published articles are made available to the world, at www.sfu.ca/nwjl.
