Journal of Linguistic Geography (JLG) is an online-only refereed journal of international scope publishing the highest quality scholarship on dialect geography and the spatial distribution of language relative to questions of variation and change. The journal examines topics in dialectology, sociolinguistics, historical linguistics, language in its sociocultural environment, typology, and investigations of the theoretical contributions by geographically based studies to general linguistics. The journal also welcomes articles inclusive of maps, sound files, and data sets, as may be appropriate.
JLG was co-founded by Bill Labov and Dennis Preston. Professor Labov has recently stepped into the role of Senior Editorial Advisor. The journal actively seeks applications for a new co-editor to work alongside Dennis Preston, preferably holding a tenured position at a college or university anywhere in the world. The initial term of the co-editor will be five years, with the possibility of renewal. Final appointment decisions will be made by the Syndicate of Cambridge University Press.
The deadline for applications is 1 May 2017.
