Language, the flagship journal of the Linguistic Society of America, publishes research articles dealing with linguistic theory, language and public policy, and the teaching of linguistics. We also publish notes of interest to the academic and professional linguistic community, and reviews of recently published linguistic books. Follow this link for complete information about the different sections in our journal. In addition to research articles dealing with linguistic theory in general, we have two research sections with a more specialized research focus:
Language and Public Policy
The Language and Public Policy section publishes original, high quality scholarship exploring and analyzing areas of public policy that benefit from the findings and methods of linguistics. Follow this link for complete information about this section.
The Teaching Linguistics section of Language publishes scholarship that analyzes a pedagogical issue, assesses a teaching technique, or reviews pedagogical materials related to the teaching of linguistics. Follow this link for complete information about this section.
