Contact Language Library

Contact Language Library (CoLL) presents descriptive and theoretical studies on contact languages. The series takes a wide definition of contact languages that includes not only pidgin, creole and mixed languages, but also other languages and varieties which have emerged in high contact situations. The series welcomes empirical studies based on either synchronic or diachronic data of language use in contact situations world-wide. This includes historical archive-based studies of individual varieties or groups of contact languages. CoLL particularly welcomes grammars and in depth descriptions of grammatical aspects of living contact varieties or those no longer spoken. All CoLL publications are anonymously and internationally refereed.

Contact Language Library (CoLL), is a continuation of the former Creole Language Library.

1. Submit a proposal

Proposals should be submitted as a doc or pdf following the Benjamins guidelines

Submit all proposals to the editors:

Felicity Meakins (f.meakins at uq.edu.au)
Viveka Vellupillai (viveka.velupillai at email.de)

Note that we do not publish PhD or MPhil/MA theses. If your book is based on a thesis, you will need to explain how you have revised it into a research monograph. Please also submit your examiners reports with the proposal.

The proposal will be assessed by both editors and Kees Vaes.

2. Submit two sample chapters

If we accept your proposal, your project will be allocated to an editor. The editor will invite you to submit two sample chapters for assessment. The sample chapters should be the introduction and one of the data chapters. This process takes around a month.

3. Submit full manuscript

If we think the chapters show potential for the CoLL series, we will provisionally accept the manuscript. We will then invite you to submit the full manuscript which will be reviewed in full by an editor and an external reviewer. This process takes around three months.
