The aim of the Journal of Linguistics is to bring together innovative contributions that share the interest in the general and theoretical questions of language, its nature, functions, governing principles and interaction with cognitive and social reality. This overarching aim, however, does not solely invite proposals from the domain of general and theoretical linguistics, as it rather opens for a wide range of topics. These include but are not restricted to studies at the level of morphology, syntax, semantics, stylistics, pragmalinguistics and so on. Due to its aim specification, the Journal does not publish submissions dealing with second language acquisition and translation studies. Preferred are contributions focused on the Slovak language and other, mostly Slavic languages, including comparative papers where Slavic languages are taken into account. The proposals may endorse comparative and/or historical perspective, quantitative and/or qualitative methodology and they can be anchored in all major contemporary linguistic fields, such as philosophy of language, cognitive linguistics, construction grammar, sociolinguistics, discourse studies, corpus linguistics and others. By this wide array of perspectives, the Journal wishes to provide a forum for researchers seeking in-depth, complex explanations of linguistic phenomena, as well as better understanding of language in general.
Journal of Linguistics is published three times a year, with one issue usually being thematic.
