About the journal

Linguistique et Langues Africaines (LLA) is an international, open-access, double-blind peer reviewed journal devoted to the study of African languages and linguistics. LLA contents are published under a CC BY-SA license. LLA is supported by the Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences of the CNRS.

LLA was founded in 2015 and is published by Llacan, a joint research unit of the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), Inalco University, and the École Pratique des Hautes Études - PSL (EPHE-PSL).

LLA provides a forum for linguists working on the phonology, morphology, syntax, pragmatics and semantics of African languages. The main purpose of LLA is to enlarge our knowledge and understanding of the enormous linguistic diversity in Africa, much of which is still sparsely documented. Contributions to LLA are expected to be data-driven (e.g. primary data from fieldwork or other corpus data), and the discussion of theoretical issues is appreciated to the extent that it helps to elucidate the data and remains accessible to persons that are not specialists in the relevant theory. All major theoretical frameworks are equally welcome. We are also interested in historical-comparative, areal linguistic and ethnolinguistic contributions.

We publish original research papers: articles and book reviews in English or French.
