Aims and Scope

We publish high-quality monographs and edited collections focusing on issues in linguistics that are located at the interface between discourse structure, information structure and text structure.

In particular, the series addresses the following areas of linguistics: discourse structure, rhetorical relations, information structure (within and beyond the clause), anaphora resolution, textual cohesion, ellipsis, salience, etc. We have a focus on using naturally-occuring data (whether from linguistic corpora or from literary texts) wherever possible.

The kind of topics we would like so see addressed include (but are not limited to):

  • formalisms for modelling principles of discourse felicity, information structure (within as well as beyond the clause unit).
  • the role of information structure in determining anaphora resolution, crosslinguistic variation with regard to this.
  • information structure and ellipsis.
  • scope phenomena and their interaction with information structure and lexical semantics.
  • sentence connection.
  • perspective in literary text.
  • experimental studies addressing issues of the grammar-discourse interface.
  • computational approaches to discourse phenomena.


We accept submissions in English and German. For the time being, however, submission is closed until further notice.
