Main URL
The Language Under Discussion Society is an interdisciplinary academic society and internet-based community which brings together scholars and students from any discipline dealing with language—linguists, philosophers of language, literary scholars, communication scholars, cognitive scientists, sociologists, anthropologists, and anybody else interested in language as a subject of study, discussion, and debate. Specifically, the society seeks to promote an approach to language that does not neglect the human aspect of language: the essential role played by human beings, their cognitive abilities and social interactions, in language in all its forms. The society publishes an open-access peer-reviewed journal (Language Under Discussion) and hosts an annual online conference, both of which are aimed at reaching an interdisciplinary audience, and publish materials that make broad and deep contributions to our understandings of language.
