Call for papers - 2016

Topics in Linguistics is a double-blind, peer-reviewed international scientific journal issued twice a year by the Department of English and American Studies, Faculty of Arts, Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra.

The journal aims to foster interdisciplinary, cross-linguistic and cross-cultural approaches to language research. Topics in Linguistics seeks to publish high-quality, original papers which adopt diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives in exploring a wide range of current issues in linguistic studies. By crossing the borders between traditional and contemporary schools of linguistics grounded in different historical and cultural traditions, the journal reveals the rich dimensions of language diversity and brings new insights into the manner in which human languages work.

Subject areas of study include, but are not limited to:

  • general linguistics (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics)
  • interfaces with general linguistics (neurolinguistics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, computational linguistics)
  • cognitive linguistics
  • comparative linguistics
  • corpus linguistics
  • applied linguistics
  • stylistics
  • (critical) discourse analysis
  • intercultural communication

Topics in Linguistics is published in English. Authors of papers submitted to the journal are notified within one month of submission of the results of the initial screening of their manuscript.

From Volume 13, 2014 onwards, Topics in Linguistics has been published by De Gruyter Open. Since 2016 Topics in Linguistics has been an electronic-only journal and can be found on a new website
