It was about one and a half years ago that I finally I arrived where I had always wanted to be and do what I had always wanted-- teach students, support small language communities and conduct research on African languages on my doorstep.

Borealis. An International Journal of Hispanic Linguistics
University of Tromsø's Working Papers in Linguistics
The International Journal of Hispanic Linguistics aims to providing a forum of exchange of ideas about contemporary Hispanic grammar and other disciplines inside linguistics. It is a biannual, online, open-access journal open to all areas of research inside Hispanic linguistics, including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, language variation and applied linguistics. It is focused on synchronic studies and it accepts works inside all theoretical frameworks. Works that focus on historical aspects of Spanish or on other languages will be considered for publication to the extent that they explicitly compare them to any variety of contemporary Spanish. We specially encourage authors that have noticed new patterns of data or found empirical generalizations that help systematise some understudied aspect of language to submit their works.
