Proposals are considered at any time and should be sent to (cc: to Naoko Taguchi [taguchiandrew.cmu.ed] and Zia Tajeddin []). The subject of the email should be ''Special Issue Proposal for Applied Pragmatics.'' Inquiries in advance of the submission of a full proposal are also welcome, and these should be sent to the same email addresses.

Experienced researchers in applied pragmatics are welcome to submit special issue proposals around the following topics or other related topics which fall within the scope of Applied Pragmatics. The topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Ensuring coherence among the manuscripts to be included in the special issue
