Aims and scope

This series provides a platform for researchers in synchronic and diachronic phonology. By bringing together detailed descriptive work on individual languages with a comparative, cross-linguistic focus, it aims to advance our understanding of the evolution and patterning of phonological systems and the role of phonology in the language system more broadly. We welcome submissions in the following areas:

  • Phonological descriptions of individual languages
  • Cross-linguistic studies of synchronic and diachronic phonological phenomena
  • Historical phonology of languages, their groupings, or particular phenomena
