Philippine Journal of Linguistics


The Philippine Journal of Linguistics is the official publication of the LSP. It publishes original studies in descriptive, comparative, historical, and areal linguistics. Although its primary interest is in linguistics theory, it also publishes papers on the application of theory to language teaching, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, and anthropological linguistics, etc. Papers on applied linguistics should, however, be chiefly concerned with the principles which underlie specific techniques, rather than the mechanical aspects of such techniques. Articles are published in English, although papers in written in Filipino, the national language of the Philippines, will occasionally appear. The Journal comes out yearly in June and December. Manuscripts for publication, exchange journals, and books for review or listing should be sent to the Editor. The Journal is distributed to members of the LSP and is paid for by their annual dues. Subscription per year is PhP500.00; foreign subscription excluding the cost of handling and mailing is US$20 a year.
