Journal Information

Title: African Languages and Linguistics (Linguistique et Langues Africaines - LLA)
Publisher: Editions Lambert-Lucas
Description: “Linguistique et Langues Africaines” (LLA) [African Languages and Linguistics] is an international journal for African linguistics, whose main goal is to contribute to a better knowledge of languages spoken in Sub-Saharan Africa, be they vernacular, vehicular or creole, with the exception of local varieties of European languages. We are open to recent trends and all theoretical approaches. The selected articles may be chiefly concerned with linguistic domains or include an anthropological component. Contributions providing comparative or typological approaches are also welcome. Junior researchers (e.g. PhD students) are encouraged to submit their contributions to LLA.

“Linguistique et Langues Africaines” is particularly interested in publishing analyses based on fieldwork data as well as studies relating to little documented or endangered languages and cultures. The journal is also open to contributions that are less concerned with theory, such as working documents or firsthand data.
