Linguistics and the Human Sciences

Review Editor:

Because no one discipline or theory in the human sciences can by itself tell the whole story of human existence, Linguistics and the Human Sciences is committed to fostering a dialogue of disciplines, in which linguistics figures prominently. This journal is devoted to the exploration of how understanding about language – our principal meaning making semiotic system – helps us understand about other phenomena in human experience, and vice versa. It aims to explore the relationships between linguistics and such areas of scholarly concern as history, sociology, politics, archaeology, religious studies, translation and the study of art in various semiotic modalities, in so much as these enterprises draw upon or contribute to a catholic understanding and development linguistics. “If there is to be a science of sciences in the twenty-first century,” writes M.A.K. Halliday “it will have to include linguistics – at least as a partner, and perhaps the leading partner, in the next round of man’s dialogue with nature.”

Please note that all submissions should be between 5000 – 10000 words in length. Papers that are shorter will not be considered.
