Journal Information

Title: Language Matters: Studies in the Languages of Africa
Publisher: Routledge (Taylor and Francis)
Description: *Listed in the Thomson Reuters Journal Citation ReportsĀ®

In essence our purpose is to provide a journal of international standing with a unique African flavour which focuses on multilingualism in Africa. Although our general focus remains on multilingualism and related issues, we plan to focus on a different special theme annually. These themes may embrace a wide spectrum of language matters of current relevance in Southern Africa.

We also endorse a multidisciplinary approach to the study of language and welcome contributions not only from sociolinguists, psycholinguists and the like, but also from educationalists, language practitioners, computer analysts and engineers anyone who has a genuine interest in and contribution to the study of language.

We hope to contribute to the language debate on all African languages and regard sub-Saharan Africa as our specific domain.
