Research in Language (RiL) is an international journal committed to publishing excellent studies in the area of linguistics and related disciplines focused on human communication. Language studies, as other scholarly disciplines, undergo two seemingly counteracting processes: the process of diversification of the field into narrow specialized domains and the process of convergence, strengthened by interdisciplinarity. It is the latter perspective that RiL editors invite for the journal, whose aim is to present language in its entirety, meshing traditional modular compartments, such as phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, and offer a multidimensional perspective which exposes varied but relevant aspects of language, e.g. the cognitive, the psychological, the institutional aspect, as well as the social shaping of linguistic convention and creativity.
Affiliated at the crosswords between Eastern and Western Europe and between the Slavic and the Anglo-American tradition, RiL is uniquely suited not only to represent current linguistics research, but also provoke confrontation and provide a forum for discussion for researchers rooted in different schools, distant both in theory and geographical space, from Europe and beyond.
RiL publishes original research articles and book reviews.
