International Journal of Literary Linguistics

The International Journal of Literary Linguistics (IJLL) is an open-access, peer-review journal published by Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Germany) that is dedicated to the publication of original research at the interface of literary studies and linguistics. The journal provides an innovative forum for articles participating in the recent reshaping of the field of literary linguistics under the influence of pragmatics, functional linguistics and cognitive studies. It aims at contributing to a new, dialogic understanding of literary production and reception. The journal invites contributions from scholars working on different languages and literatures.

Submissions to the journal may be concerned with (but are not restricted to) the following topics: Textuality, intertextuality, dialogism, narratology, stylistics, genre, in spoken, written and multimodal texts (and in their adaptations into other media). We are also interested in publishing special issues edited by guest editors as well as reviews of scholarly books of relevance.

Publication language is English.

The work of the editorial team is supported by an advisory board comprising some of the most eminent scholars in the field of literary linguistics.

Vol 6, No 1 (2017): Research Agendas in Literary Linguistics

This special issue brings together articles based on papers given at the First Literary Linguistics Conference: Research Agendas in Literary Linguistics, held in April 2015 at Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz. Embracing a wide range of methodologies, applied to an equally diverse selection of literary sources, the present papers provide an illuminating survey of the field of literary linguistics and will hopefully inspire further research.
