Language and Cognition is the official journal of the UK Cognitive Linguistics Association. It is a venue for the publication of high quality peer-reviewed research focusing on the interface between language and cognition. It is open to research from the full range of subject disciplines, theoretical backgrounds, and analytical frameworks that populate the language and cognitive sciences, on a wide range of topics. Research published in the journal uses an interdisciplinary, comparative, multi-methodological approach to advance understanding of language and cognition and their intersections. The editors especially encourage submissions that investigate the traditional areas of cognitive linguistics (e.g., conceptual semantics, linguistic categorization, iconicity, metaphor, linguistic relativity, embodied cognition, grammaticalization, construction-based grammar) using experimental, computational, and/or corpus-based methods.

The journal publishes original research articles, systematic review articles (meta-analyses), and book reviews. It does not publish technical reports, commentary articles, or position papers. Normally, book reviews and review articles are solicited by the editors. Please contact the Review Editor first if you would like to submit a book review; if you have an idea for a review article or a special issue of the journal, contact one of the General Editors with your proposal. Only original research articles may be submitted without invitation from one of the editors. Submitted articles should be no shorter than 8,000 words and no longer than 10,000 words, including references, footnotes and appendices. Submissions that significantly exceed the 10,000-word upper limit may be returned by editors without comment or review.

If you are a phonetician or a linguist or a psychologist in speech recognition and understanding or a sociologist in speech communication and conversation analysis or a communications engineer your answer to both Polarity Questions should be positive, and . . . → Read More: Leading phonetician, Klaus J.

  • What are the linguistic consequences of Brexit?
  • 19 July 2018, Katie
  • Blog post written by Gordana Lalic-Krstin and Nadezda Silaski, authors of the article ‘From Brexit to Bregret: An account of some Brexit-induced neologisms What are the linguistic consequences of Brexit? Judging by the material we collected from news media (broadcast and online), Facebook and Twitter, blogs and internet forums, the event  has generated a myriad of neologisms in English, using Brexit as a model or as a source word. 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?...
