LANGUAGE AND COGNITION is a venue for the publication of high quality
peer-reviewed research of a theoretical and/or empirical/experimental
nature, focussing on the interface between language and cognition.  The
journal publishes research from the full range of subject disciplines,
theoretical backgrounds, and analytical frameworks that populate the
language and cognitive sciences, on a wide range of topics.  Research
published in the journal typically adopted an interdisciplinary,
comparative, multi-methodological approach to the study of language and
cognition and their intersection.  The journal is edited by Daniel
Casasanto, Seana Coulson, Vyvyan Evans, David Kemmerer, Laura Michaelis
and Chris Sinha.

The journal is open to contributions from any theoretical perspective
and methodological approach which bears on the scientific study of
language and its relationship with cognition.  In particular it
publishes both theoretical and empirical research.  Submission details
