Vol 2, No 1 (2013) Literary Linguistics: The Challenge of Cognition I

Dear friends of SNEB (the SoMu programme), the Department of English and Linguistics at the University of Mainz, Germany, is pleased to announce that the first special issue of the International Journal of Literary Linguistics is now online!

The International Journal of Literary Linguistics (IJLL) is an open-access, peer-review journal published by Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Germany) that publishes original research at the interface of literary studies and linguistics. The journal provides an innovative forum for articles participating in the recent reshaping of the field of literary linguistics under the influence of pragmatics, functional linguistics and cognitive studies. It aims at contributing to a new, dialogic understanding of literary production and reception. The journal invites submission from scholars working on different languages and literatures.

Submissions to the journal may be concerned with (but are not restricted to) the following topics: Textuality, intertextuality, dialogism, narratology, stylistics, genre, in spoken, written and multimodal texts (and in their adaptations into other media). Recommended article length: 8,000 - 12,000 words.
Publication language is English.
