Write for Babel!
Babel is seeking linguists to provide articles on a range of linguistic topics for our upcoming 2017 issues. We publish articles on all areas of lingusitics - the only requirement is that articles make linguistic research accessible and interesting for specialist and non-specialist readers alike.
Babel articles are between 1,500 and 3,500 words in length, covering topics such as the language of Shakespeare, foreign language learning in the United States, and Konglish, a fusion of Korean and English.
We are also seeking contributions for our regular features:
• Ask a Linguist – a linguist answers a question from a Babel reader, e.g. 'How do emojis mean?'
• Languages of the World – a profile of an obscure or interesting language, e.g. Manx.
• Lives in Language – a profile of an important (deceased!) linguist, e.g. Samuel Johnson.
• Meet the Professionals – an interview with someone in a linguistics-related career, e.g. linguistic anthropologist.
• Pull-out poster – a visually appealing explanation of an area of linguistics, with a discussion of problems, e.g. the phonology of sign language.
Contributors' guidelines are available in our FAQ section, and you can read our free sampler issue to get a good idea of what Babel is like.
