Language and Linguistics | 語言暨語言學

Language and Linguistics is an academic publication of the Institute of Linguistics at Academia Sinica. Established in 2000, it publishes research in general and theoretical linguistics on the languages of East Asia and the Pacific region, including Sino-Tibetan, Austronesian, and the Austroasiatic and Altaic language families.

Since 2013, Language and Linguistics has been managed by an Editor-in-Chief, with internationally known scholars with different areas of expertise serving as Associate Editors, Editorial Board Members, and Reviewers, in order to present an informative, insightful scholarly dialogue.
To increase international citation rates and visibility, Language and Linguistics has been co-published with international publisher SAGE from 2014 to 2016 (Volume 15-17) and distributed worldwide. Beginning in 2017 (Volume 18), Language and Linguistics will be in partnership with internationally renowned John Benjamins Publishing Company, one of the leading publishers in the field of language and linguistics.

Language and Linguistics is the only international linguistic journal that publishes in both English and Traditional Chinese. With original studies and a rigorous review process, the journal is indexed by the Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) and Arts & Humanities Citation Index (A&HCI).

Language and Linguistics seeks to provide research that is professional, insightful, and current, and welcomes submissions in all areas of linguistics.
