Write for Babel!
Babel is seeking linguists to provide articles on a range of linguistic topics for our upcoming 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.
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.
