Editorial Policies

Focus and Scope

TWPL publishes papers in the fields of Theoretical Linguistics (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, within a generative framework), Language Variation (sociolinguistics, dialectology, language variation and change), and Psycholinguistics (comprehension and production, language acquisition).

Normally, papers in applied linguistics, second language pedagogy, or conversation analysis lie outside of our focus and cannot be accepted for publication.

We accept submissions in English and French.
