This is a list of journals that cover the field of Language and Languages.

Language and Languages

TALIP will primarily consist of research and survey papers and shorter concise research papers. The latter will provide a quick means for dissemination of information related to leading edge research in Asian language information processing, while the former is meant for publication of substantial research findings. Papers describing reproducible techniques and theory for systems and applications will also be considered. However, descriptions of specific products in the field with no proof of reproducibility will not be accepted. TALIP will cover issues in NLP for Asian languages broadly. Aspects including theory, systems design, evaluation, and applications in the fields will be covered. Emphasis will be placed on the originality and the "re-use" value of theory, technology, and applications in the field.


A Quarterly of Linguistic Usage published on behalf of the American Dialect Society. American Speech has been one of the foremost publications in its field since its founding in 1925. The journal is concerned principally with the English language in the Western Hemisphere, although articles dealing with English in other parts of the world, the influence of other languages by or on English, and linguistic theory are also published. The journal is not committed to any particular theoretical framework, and issues often contain contributions that appeal to a readership wider than the linguistic studies community. Regular features include a book review section and a “Miscellany” section devoted to brief essays and notes.

Anthropological Linguistics, a quarterly journal founded in 1959, provides a forum for the full range of scholarly study of the languages and cultures of the peoples of the world, especially the native peoples of the Americas. Embracing the field of language and culture broadly defined, the editors welcome articles and research reports addressing cultural, historical, and philological aspects of linguistic study, including analyses of texts and discourse; studies of semantic systems and cultural classifications; onomastic studies; ethnohistorical papers that draw significantly on linguistic data; studies of linguistic prehistory and genetic classification, both methodological and substantive; discussions and interpretations of archival material; edited historical documents; and contributions to the history of the field. Anthropological Linguistics (ISSN 0003-5483) (USPS 026980) is published quarterly by the American Indian Studies Research Institute and the Department of Anthropology at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, USA.


Anthropos is one of the ten largest and most important journals in the world devoted to Cultural Anthropology. Its international character and its pluralistic approach have always been distinguishing marks of the journal. Discussions on the theory and method of Cultural Anthropology find their place in the journal as well as extensive ethnographic descriptions and other documentation. The different specialities in Anthropology are also well represented (Anthropology of Religion, Economic and Social Anthropology, Culture History, Linguistics, etc.). All else being equal, preference is given to articles that deal, in however broad a sense, with religious materials. Every issue has about 700 pages to which roughly 125 authors typically contributed. Each issue of Anthropos has a distribution of 900 copies to 60 countries. Anthropos is published twice a year totalling ca. 700 pages. Subscription rate per year: sfr 190,-/ €125 (postage not included)


Applied Linguistics publishes research into language with relevance to real-world problems. The journal is keen to help make connections between fields, theories, research methods, and scholarly discourses, and welcomes contributions which critically reflect on current practices in applied linguistic research. It promotes scholarly and scientific discussion of issues that unite or divide scholars in applied linguistics. It is less interested in the ad hoc solution of particular problems and more interested in the handling of problems in a principled way by reference to theoretical studies. Applied linguistics is viewed not only as the relation between theory and practice, but also as the study of language and language-related problems in specific situations in which people use and learn languages. Within this framework the journal welcomes contributions in such areas of current enquiry as: bilingualism and multilingualism; computer-mediated communication; conversation analysis; deaf linguistics; discourse analysis and pragmatics; corpus linguistics; critical discourse analysis; first and additional language learning, teaching, and use; forensic linguistics; language assessment; language planning and policies; language for special purposes; literacies; multimodal communication; rhetoric and stylistics; and translation. The journal welcomes both reports of original research and conceptual articles.

The Canadian Modern Language Review publishes peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of language learning and teaching -- linguistics, language skills, curriculum, program design, psychology, methodology -- making this a great tool for teachers, researchers, professors and policy makers who deal with the realities of second language learning. Article topics range from ESL, to French immersion, to international languages, to native languages. The journal's quarterly issues include reviews of relevant books and software, along with research-based articles dealing with second language teaching in the "Focus on the Classroom" section.


Computational Linguistics is the only publication devoted exclusively to the design and analysis of natural language processing systems. From this unique quarterly, university and industry linguists, computational linguists, artificial intelligence (AI) investigators, cognitive scientists, speech specialists, and philosophers get information about computational aspects of research on language, linguistics, and the psychology of language processing and performance. Computational Linguistics is the official journal of The Association for Computational Linguistics.

Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) is an intercontinental and interdisciplinary journal which leads the field in its dedication to all matters associated with the use of computers in language learning (L1 and L2), teaching and testing. It provides a forum to discuss the discoveries in the field and to exchange experience and information about existing techniques. The scope of the journal is intentionally wide-ranging and embraces a multitude of disciplines. Submitted articles may focus on CALL and: Research Methodologies; Language Learning and Teaching Methods; Language Testing Systems and Models; The Four Skills; SLA; HCI; Language Courseware Design; Language Courseware Development; Curriculum Integration; Evaluation; Teacher Training; Intelligent Tutoring; New Technologies; The Sociocultural Context; and Learning Management Systems.

Discourse Studies is a multidisciplinary journal for the study of text and talk. Publishing outstanding work on the structures and strategies of written and spoken discourse, special attention is given to cross-disciplinary studies of text and talk in linguistics, anthropology, ethnomethodology, cognitive and social psychology, communication studies and law.

ELT Journal is a quarterly publication for all those involved in the field of teaching English as a second or foreign language. The journal links the everyday concerns of practitioners with insights gained from related academic disciplines such as applied linguistics, education, psychology, and sociology. ELT Journal provides a medium for informed discussion of the principles and practice which determine the ways in which the English language is taught and learnt around the world. It is also a forum for the exchange of information among members of the profession worldwide.

English Education is the official journal of the Conference On English Education of the National Council of Teachers of English. The Conference on English Education (CEE) is an organization concerned with the process of educating teachers of English and language arts. That education involves both the preservice and the inservice development of teachers. Recognizing the reciprocity of teaching and learning, the CEE addresses pertinent theory and research as they inform curriculum, methodology, and certification. Included in the constituency of the CEE are college and university teacher-educators; inservice leaders and consultants; supervisors at local, district, regional, and state levels; mentor teachers; teacher consultants curriculum coordinators and developers; teacher-researchers; and classroom teachers who work with student teachers. Published quarterly, English Education contains articles that focus on issues related to the nature of the discipline, especially as it spans all levels of instruction, and the education and development of teachers of English at all levels

English Journal is a journal of ideas for English language arts teachers in junior and senior high schools and middle schools. EJ presents information on the teaching of writing and reading, literature, and language. Each issue examines the relationship of theory and research to classroom practice and reviews current materials of interest to English teachers, including books and electronic media. Published bimonthly, September, November, January, March, May, and July by the National Council of Teachers of English (NTCE).

English Quarterly, the official refereed journal of the CCTELA, publishes original contributions on all facets of English language arts at the elementary, secondary, and post-secondary levels. The Editor welcomes a wide range of genres: debates, interviews, narrative explorations, poetry, point and counterpoint, research investigations, position papers, reviews, works-in-progress, and so on. The Editor especially welcomes papers from classroom practitioners as well as students, education teacher candidates, along with college and university instructors. Furthermore, the Editor is looking for material that is written in a lively accessible style and which links teaching or learning with reflection on that practice.

Essential Teacher is a magazine for language teachers and administrators in varied ESL and EFL workplaces, including pre-K-12, 2- and 4-year institutions of higher learning, and adult education. Each of these arenas has teachers with varied experience and expertise, making for a broad and diverse readership. Essential Teacher also offers guidance to mainstream teachers who work with students for whom English is an additional language. Essential Teacher is a publication of TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages, Inc.).


Foreign Language Annals (FLA) is the official journal of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). The first volume of FLA was published in 1967. FLA is a refereed journal published four times per year. There are approximately 10 articles per issue. Dedicated to the advancement of language teaching and learning, the journal seeks to serve the professional interests of classroom instructors, researchers, and administrators concerned with the learning and teaching of languages at all levels of instruction. The journal welcomes submissions of the highest quality that report empirical or theoretical research on language learning or teaching, that describe innovative and successful practice and methods, and/or that are relevant to the concerns and issues of the profession.
