New series — Language Contexts
EL Publishing is introducing a new article series that will appear in the
journal Language Documentation and Description called 'Language Contexts'.
Language Contexts focuses on the contexts in which a language or variety is
spoken, providing social and cultural information that complements other
linguistically-focused sources (such as Ethnologue or Glottolog). Articles
will include information about the speaker population, social organisation,
cultural aspects, linguistic ecology (including multilingualism and factors
influencing language choice), language vitality, and language use and
transmission in the community, diaspora and cyberspace. Articles are
expected to normally be 5,000-7,000 words and we strongly encourage the
inclusion of images, maps and other illustrative material, especially links
to online resources and material available in repositories or archives. It
is also possible to include media samples (audio, video clips).
For more details please see http://www.el-blog.org/el-
org/language-contexts or contact the editors at elpublishing2017 at gmail.com.
