Glos­sa – A Jour­nal of Gen­er­al Lin­guis­tics

The jour­nal is ded­i­cat­ed to gen­er­al lin­guis­tics. It pub­lish­es con­tri­bu­tions from all areas of lin­guis­tics, pro­vid­ed they con­tain the­o­ret­i­cal impli­ca­tions that shed light on the nature of lan­guage and the lan­guage fac­ul­ty. Con­tri­bu­tions should be of inter­est to all lin­guists, inde­pen­dent­ly of their own spe­cial­i­sa­tion.

No spe­cif­ic lin­guis­tic the­o­ries or trends are giv­en pref­er­ence. Papers accept­ed for pub­li­ca­tion are strict­ly select­ed on the basis of sci­en­tif­ic qual­i­ty and schol­ar­ly stand­ing.

Die Grün­dung von Glos­sa 2016 erregte in der „Welt der wis­senschaftlichen Jour­nals“ recht großes Auf­se­hen, weil die Her­aus­ge­ber zuvor von ihrer Tätigkeit für die Zeitschrift „Lin­gua“ bei Else­vi­er zurück­ge­treten waren, weil sie mit dem Ver­lag keine Eini­gung zur Umwand­lung der Lin­gua zu einem Open-Access-Jour­nal erre­ichen kon­nten.

Glos­sa wird finanziert von der Lin­gOA-Ini­tia­tive (eben­so wie die Zeitschriften Lab­o­ra­to­ry Phonol­o­gy, Jour­nal of Por­tuguese Lin­guis­tics und das Ital­ian Jour­nal of Lin­guis­tics) sowie durch die Open Library of Human­i­ties (OLH), die 26 geis­teswis­senschaftliche Zeitschriften unter­stützt, darunter z.B. die Lab­o­ra­to­ry Phonol­o­gy.
Die ULB Mün­ster zählt zu den Unter­stützern der OLH.

Lan­guage under dis­cus­sion (LUD)
Das Ziel des von der gle­ich­nami­gen Gesellschaft her­aus­gegebe­nen Jour­nals: „pro­mot­ing open-mind­ed debate on cen­tral ques­tions in the study of lan­guage, from all rel­e­vant dis­ci­pli­nary and the­o­ret­i­cal per­spec­tives.
Our jour­nal seeks, unapolo­get­i­cal­ly, to pro­mote schol­ar­ly dis­cus­sion of the “big” ques­tions about lan­guage — such ques­tions as: What kind of a thing is lan­guage? What is the nature of lin­guis­tic mean­ing? How to best con­cep­tu­al­ize struc­ture and reg­u­lar­i­ty in human lan­guages? What is the role lan­guage plays in cul­ture and how do cul­tur­al phe­nom­e­na reflect on lan­guage? What are the roles of cog­ni­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion in lan­guage? — We believe that spe­cial­ized and applied stud­ies are at their best when they are informed by a vision or mod­el of lan­gu­a­ge in gen­er­al and reflect back on it, just as the­o­ret­i­cal dis­cus­sions are only tru­ly valu­able when ground­ed in empir­i­cal research

Jour­nal of Post­colo­nial Lin­guis­tics (IACPL)
Diese Zeitschrift der Inter­na­tion­al Asso­ci­a­tion for Colo­nial and Post­colo­nial Lin­guis­tics veröf­fentlicht Forschun­gen zur Sprache im postkolo­nialen Kon­text und aus der Sprach­wis­senschaft in postkolo­nialer Per­spek­tive:

Post­colo­nial lin­guists aim to pro­vide new mod­els, the­o­ries and analy­ses that are ade­quate in a mul­ti­po­lar, post­colo­nial world, and which can chal­lenge the under­stand­ings, con­cep­tu­al­iza­tions and the­o­riz­ing cre­at­ed by Euro­cen­tric frame­works. Thus, the jour­nal wel­comes crit­i­cal, ana­lyt­i­cal­ly inno­v­a­tive con­tri­bu­tions that pro­vide new evi­dence and analy­ses of under­stud­ied lin­guis­tic prac­tices and lan­guage vari­eties in post­colo­nial con­texts. It also encour­ages con­cep­tu­al­ly ori­ent­ed papers that dis­cuss cen­tral ques­tions in this emerg­ing field, includ­ing the fol­low­ing:

Rep­re­sen­ta­tions in lin­guis­tics. How do we rep­re­sent words, con­struc­tions, and con­ver­sa­tions in lin­guis­tics? What meta­lan­guage is suit­able for ana­lyz­ing lan­guage and lin­guis­tic prac­tices?

Voic­es in lin­guis­tics. Who gets to speak? How are (post)colonial dynam­ics of pow­er struc­tured and enact­ed in pub­lic dis­cours­es of edu­ca­tion, pol­i­tics, and in soci­ety in gen­er­al?

Bias­es in lin­guis­tics. Through what lens­es do we study the world and its speak­ers? How can we escape bias­es such as Euro­cen­trism, Anglo­cen­trism, chrono­cen­trism, ‘the writ­ten lan­guage bias’, and sim­i­lar well-doc­u­ment­ed descrip­tive and the­o­ret­i­cal bias­es?

Ethics in lin­guis­tics. How do we study lan­guages, dis­cours­es and speak­ers eth­i­cal­ly, in an age of transna­tion­al­ism, urban­iza­tion, and lin­guis­tic mar­gin­al­iza­tion?
