Call Deadline: 31-Oct-2018 

Call for Papers:

The International Journal of Arabic Linguistics (IJAL) welcomes serious and
scholarly works on the Arabic language. For its first issues, the editors
encourage in particular papers that provide the state of the art in various
aspects of Arabic linguistics: sociolinguistics, dialectology, historical
linguistics, language contact, and other areas. The papers should also raise
issues for further research so that new generations of our readers and
researchers can follow and, hopefully, contribute to the ongoing debate
concerning the various phenomena that previous generations have been dealing
with and their approaches to them. Among the issues that contributors can
tackle, the following are suggested, but they are by no means the only ones:
- The mixing of standard and colloquial elements in discourse (i.e. the
so-called 'Mixed Arabic'), its grammar and its social functions;
- The Pidginization Hypothesis and the emergence of modern Arabic dialects;
- Dialect contact and its linguistic and social consequences;
- Contact between Arabic and other languages;
- The history and development of Classical Arabic, its place among other
Semitic languages;
- The standardization of the 'Arabiyya, the socio-political and the religious
factors that stood behind it.

In addition to research papers, the journal also publishes book reviews. These
are intended primarily for readers of Arabic who cannot read works published
in other languages. We have noticed that many influential studies by non-Arab
scholars are not very well-known among native students of Arabic linguistics.
Therefore, review articles are required to be written in the Arabic language.

Researchers should consult the authors' guide (downloadable from this link:
http://revues.imist.ma/public/site/images/admin/Instructions_for_Authors.pdf )
for the requirements on the format of the article and other policies. Papers
may preferably be submitted online in order to ensure better communication
between the editor, the reviewers and the author and in order for the latter
to keep track of her or his submission. Otherwise, contributions can also be
directly sent to the assistant via this Email: Omar.BenJilali9 at gmail.com.
Contributions sent before the end of October 2018 will be considered for the
second issue of the fourth volume. If, however, any contributions are sent
after this deadline, they will be considered for the following issue due in
the beginning of 2019.
