Papers in Language and Communication Studies (PiLaCS) Papers in Language and Communication Studies (PiLaCS)

Current call for papers

We are pleased to announce the call for papers for the second volume of PiLaCS. Please note the submission deadline of January 15, 2018. Authors are encouraged to follow the recommendations as laid out in the style sheet.

PiLaCS is an online journal of works in progress by staff, students and researchers working in language, communication and related disciplines throughout the University of East Anglia. PiLaCS is an ideal forum for disseminating pre-print work and gaining valuable feedback. Submitting to PiLaCS will not prevent authors from subsequently submitting their work to a peer-reviewed journal (or other publication), and it is anticipated that authors will ultimately do so. Postgraduate students are particularly encouraged to submit their work. We welcome submissions that address problems in any areas related to language and communication studies.

The editors are pleased to announce the inaugural volume of PiLaCS, published below.
