A peer reviewed journal which seeks to publish original work on 
Chinese and related languages, with a focus on current topics in 
Chinese discourse studies. The notion of discourse is a broad one, 
emphasizing an empirical orientation and encompassing such linguistic 
fields as language and society, language and culture, language and 
social interaction, discourse and grammar, communication studies, and 
contact linguistics. Special emphasis is placed on systematic 
documentation of Chinese usage patterns and methodological 
innovations in explaining Chinese and related languages from a wide 
range of functionalistic perspectives, including, but not limited to, 
those of Conversation Analysis, sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics, 
grammaticalization, cognitive linguistics, typological and 
comparative studies.

The journal also publishes review articles as well as discussion 
topics. Exchanges of research views between authors and readers are 
also encouraged.
