John Benjamins is pleased to announce a new journal for 2020: Asian Languages and Linguistics, edited by Danqing Liu (Chinese Academy of Social Sciences), Ailan Fu (Beijing Normal University) and Gong Cheng (Zhejiang University).

Asian Languages and Linguistics aims to enhance high-quality research on the description and theoretical analysis of languages throughout Asia. The journal encourages submissions from a wide range of topics, including but not limited to the following:
- Theoretical research on the syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology, and pragmatics of any Asian language, and the interface studies such as syntax-semantics interface and morphology-phonology interface.
- Typological research based on empirical data or theoretical analysis (following any framework) on the structural diversities and cross-linguistic variations among Asian languages or between Asian languages and other languages.
- Diachronic research based on a careful investigation of Asian languages data that contribute to the theory or methodology of historical linguistics, as well as interdisciplinary study which links historical linguistics to corpus-based research, language variation, typology, etc.
- Cross-disciplinary research between linguistics and philosophy, psychology, language processing, etc. that contributes to the understanding of Asian languages.

Contributions from a comparative or typological perspective are especially welcome.
