Linguistic Variation

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Linguistic Variation

From the John Benjamins website for the journal:

Linguistic Variation (LV) is an international, peer-reviewed journal that focuses on the theoretical study of linguistic variation. It seeks to investigate to what extent the study of linguistic variation can shed light on the broader issue of language-particular versus language-universal properties, on the interaction between what is fixed and necessary on the one hand and what is variable and contingent on the other. This enterprise involves properly defining and delineating the notion of linguistic variation, identifying possible loci of variation, investigating what the variable properties of natural language reveal about its underlying invariant core, and conversely, exploring the range and type of variation that arises from the interaction between several invariant principles.

“Empirically, these issues can be investigated on the level of both intra- and interlinguistic differences, of closely related languages (microvariation, dialectology) and larger typological groups (macrovariation). Theoretically, these questions can be addressed from the point of view of syntax, morphology, phonology, phonetics, acquisition, psycholinguistics and semantics.

“Linguistic Variation aims to provide a forum for the discussion of these and related topics. It welcomes both empirically and theoretically oriented papers that further our understanding of linguistic variation by relating patterns of variation to the organization of the language faculty.

Now available to the University of  Cambridge electronically from volume 18 (2018) to present.

Early Medieval Europe provides an indispensable source of information and debate on the history of Europe from the later Roman Empire to the eleventh century.

It covers Europe in its entirety, including material on Iceland, Ireland, the British Isles, Scandinavia and Continental Europe (both west and east). Early Medieval Europe is unique in its chronological, methodological and geographical scope. Filling an important gap, it is indispensable reading for all students and scholars of the early medieval world.”

Journal of Language and Politics

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Journal of Language and Politics

From the John Benjamins website for the journal:

“The Journal of Language and Politics (JLP) represents an interdisciplinary and critical forum for analysing and discussing the various dimensions in the interplay between language and politics. It locates at the intersection of several social science disciplines including communication and media research, linguistics, discourse studies, political science, political sociology or political psychology. It focuses mainly on the empirically-founded research on the role of language and wider communication in all social processes and dynamics that can be deemed as political. Its focus is therefore not limited to the ’institutional’ field of politics or to the traditional channels of political communication but extends to a wide range of social fields, actions and media (incl. traditional and online) where political and politicised ideas are linguistically and discursively constructed and communicated.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 17 (2018) to present.
