John Benjamins Publishing Company is pleased to announce a new journal:

Asia-Pacific Language Variation (APLV)

This journal aims to report research on the description and analysis of variation and change from the Asia-Pacific region. The journal encourages research that is firmly based on empirical data and quantitative analysis of variation and change as well as the social factors that are reflected and constructed through language variation and change. Though much of the research is expected to be based on new speech data and fieldwork, the language data may be either oral or written, including both modern and historical resources.

The unique emphasis of the journal is to promote understanding of the multifaceted linguistic communities of Asia-Pacific.

APLV invites original articles on all aspects of language variation and change that are firmly grounded in traditions of empirical research and quantitative methods. Articles are welcome from all aspects of language inquiry dealing with language variation. We especially welcome articles on lesser reported languages, restructured varieties and the articles that report on locally relevant social factors. The journal also welcomes language descriptions based on innovative methods with an interest in variation. Apart from publishing regular research articles, the journal also intends to promote awareness about the languages and communities of the region. Such information would be published in the form of short notes.
