Lingua welcomes submissions from all linguistic disciplines, not only general linguistics (i.e. phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics) but also philosophy of language, rhetoric, historical linguistics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, cognitive linguistics, functional linguistics, psycholinguistics, and neurolinguistics.

Lingua is open to submissions, whether data-driven or theoretical, that contribute to our understanding of diverse linguistic constructs and communicative phenomena. Lingua is interested in both theoretical and empirical research problems, not restricted by disciplinary boundaries, which help linguists to develop linguistic theory and to better understand all mechanisms of language as a vehicle for communication. Lingua offers a forum for research on language diversity or specificity, as well as common features across languages that govern communication. No particular linguistic theories or scientific trends are favored: scientific quality, scholarly rigor and novel contributions to scholarship are the only criteria applied in the selection of papers accepted for publication.

In addition to ORIGINAL RESEARCH PAPERS, Lingua publishes OVERVIEW ARTICLES that critically survey developments in the various fields of language study.

In the BOOK REVIEW section, Lingua publishes essay-type articles that review current monographs, edited volumes or conference proceedings. These reviews may agree or disagree with perspectives in the books being reviewed, and, instead of summarizing the contents, review essays discuss ideas or themes drawn from these books, making scholarly contributions in their own right.

A section called NOTES & DISCUSSION features short essays that extend, analyze, or offer alternative interpretations to articles previously published in Lingua. NOTES & DISCUSSION contributions are refereed as are journal articles; the primary criterion for acceptance being substantive additions, whether criticism or endorsement, to original articles.

Lingua continues the tradition of SPECIAL ISSUES focused on topics of current interest. Prospective editors of special issues are invited to inquire the Editor-in-Chief ( concerning their proposals.
