The Journal of the International Phonetic Association (JIPA) is a forum for original research in the fields of phonetic theory and description and their phonological, typological and broader implications. JIPA encourages submissions in both well-known and un(der)documented linguistic varieties, including minority and endangered languages. JIPA also publishes review papers on current topics in phonetic theory, analysis and instrumentation, and invites proposals for special issues on topics related to its subject matter. As well as publishing research on phonetics, laboratory phonology and related topics, the journal welcomes submissions on practical applications of phonetics to areas such as phonetics teaching, speech therapy, and computer speech processing, provided the focus of such submissions is primarily linguistic in nature. JIPA is especially concerned with the theory behind the International Phonetic Alphabet and publishes papers, known as Illustrations of the IPA, that use the alphabet for the analysis and description of the sound structures of a wide variety of languages. JIPA publishes online audio files to supplement the text of the Illustrations and encourages the submission of such supplementary materials for all contributions, including the submission of manuscripts with embedded audio files. JIPA is indexed in a number of leading databases, including Web of Science (AHCI & SSCI) and Scopus.

Brexit  was modelled after Grexit, a word coined to denote the possibility of Greece leaving the Eurozone, giving rise to at least two more similarly coined blends, Spexit and Itexit, referring to the prospect of the same event in Spain and Italy. However, this was just a beginning . . . → Read More: What are the linguistic consequences of Brexit?...
  • The grammar of engagement
  • 21 June 2018, Jen Malat
  • This blog post is written by Nicholas Evans, inspired by the Language and Cognition article “The grammar of engagement I: framework and initial exemplification” ‘Philosophy must plough over the whole of language’, as Wittgenstein famously stated. But which language? Singularising the noun allows a deceptive slippage between some language whose premises we take for granted (‘The limits of my language are the limits of my world’ was another great, and corrective, line of his) and ‘language’ in some dangerously, presumptively general sense. One of the great what-if questions for linguistics, philosophy and cognitive science is how different the last two millennia of western thought would be if we had built our . . . → Read More: The grammar of engagement...
