About the Journal

CSLI Online Publications

The Journal of South Asian Linguistics is an open access online journal devoted to the linguistic study of South Asia. JSAL covers the areas of phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and their interfaces, from all theoretical approaches, including formal, computational, historical, psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic, cognitive, and acquisition.

JSAL welcomes submissions on the languages of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Tibet, and their diasporas, as well as submissions that take a comparative view within this region or across regions. An important goal of the journal is to showcase the vast range of variation within and across languages in the Subcontinent, with a special focus on underdocumented languages and their varieties.

Contributions to the journal can take the form of full-length articles, theoretically oriented descriptions of understudied languages, and book reviews. We also welcome proposals for occasional special issues edited by guest editors devoted to particular topics.

JSAL supports the sharing of research in a timely fashion, and publishes articles and reviews as they are ready. All publications for a given year are then compiled into a complete issue the following January.
