Open Linguistics

Call Deadline: 31-Dec-2014

Call Information:

Open Linguistics invites manuscripts for the Topical Issue ''Towards Branch-
Crossing Isoglosses in Indo-European''. By branch-crossing isoglosses we mean
those convergent isoglosses (phonetic, lexical or grammatical) that are shared
by some historically attested Indo-European languages regardless their
immediate genetic affiliation. Such isoglosses have been observed since the
proposal of the Wave Model by Johannes Schmidt. However, a systematic and
comprehensive approach to this phenomenon is still a desideratum.

The ultimate goal is to reconsider our knowledge of the history of the Indo-
European languages from the point of view of Contact Linguistics.
Papers on methodology and theoretical aspects of this problem, as well as
individual case studies are welcome.

How to Submit

Authors are kindly invited to register at our paper processing system at: and submit their contribution. Every
manuscript should be clearly marked as intended for this special issue. All
papers will go through the Open Linguistics' high standards, quick, fair and
comprehensive peer-review procedure. Instructions for authors are available
