Mouton is officially launching a new online-only journal, Linguistics Vanguard, at the Linguistic Society of America 2015 annual meeting in January. This is a broad-scope journal, covering all areas of linguistics. Suzanne Wagner is area co-editor of the sociolinguistics section with Erez Levon (Queen Mary, University of London). We're already looking for articles! We'll be publishing short (< 4000 wd) pieces that introduce new methods, float new ideas or provide overviews of topics. Articles will typically take fewer than 3 months from initial submission to online publication, making it possible to get innovative work out to readers very quickly. And of course, the online format will allow for the inclusion of audio, video and graphics. If you're interested, contact Suzanne: wagnersu AT msu.edu.
Who we are
We are faculty and students interested in language variation and change at Michigan State University in the departments of Linguistics & Languages, Romance & Classical Studies, Anthropology, Education and beyond.
