Linguistic Insights

Studies in Language and Communication

Editors: Maurizio Gotti
ISSN: 1424-8689

This series aims to promote specialist language studies, both in the fields of linguistic theory and applied linguistics, by publishing volumes that focus on specific aspects of language use in one or several languages and provide valuable insights into language and communication research. A cross-disciplinary approach is favoured and most European languages are accepted.
The series includes two types of books:
Monographs – featuring in-depth studies on special aspects of language theory, language analysis or language teaching.
Collected papers – assembling papers from workshops, conferences or symposia.
Each volume of the series is subjected to a double peer-reviewing process.
