Journal Information

Title: Linguistique et Langues Africaines (LLA)
Publisher: LLACAN
Description: The journal Linguistique and Langues Africaines (LLA) was founded in 2015 and is published by LLACAN, a joint research unit of the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and INALCO University. LLA provides a forum for linguists working on the phonology, morphology, syntax, pragmatics and semantics of African languages. The main purpose of LLA is to enlarge our knowledge and understanding of the enormous linguistic diversity in Africa, much of which is still sparsely documented. Contributions to LLA are expected to be data-driven (e.g. primary data from fieldwork or other corpus data), and the discussion of theoretical issues is appreciated to the extent that it helps to elucidate the data and remains accessible to persons that are not specialists in the relevant theory. All major theoretical frameworks are equally welcome. We are also interested in historical-comparative, areal linguistic and ethnolinguistic contributions. We publish articles, notes from the field and book reviews in English or French. Authors willing to submit in another language are invited to contact the editors. After submission, articles will undergo a double-blind peer review by external experts different from those on the editorial committee.
