Philippine Journal of Linguistics Vol 49


Various Authors

The Philippine Journal of Linguistics, the official scholarly journal of the Linguistics Society of the Philippines, is an international peer-reviewed journal of research in linguistics. Published once a year in December, it aims to serve as a forum for original studies in descriptive, comparative, historical, and areal linguistics. Although its primary interest is in linguistic theory, it also publishes papers on the application of theory to language teaching, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, anthropological linguistics, among others. Papers on applied linguistics should, however, ne chiefly concerned with principles which underlie specific techniques. Articles are published in English, although papers written in Filipino, the national language of the Philippines, will occasionally appear. Since the Linguistic Society of the Philippines is composed of members whose paramount interest is the Philippine languages, papers on these and related languages are given priority in publication. This does not mean, however, that the Journal will limit its scope to the Austronesian language family. Studies on any aspect of language structure are welcome.
