About the Journal

The Journal of Language and Discrimination provides a multidisciplinary platform to broadcast important social issues, focusing on the close relationship between many forms of discrimination and social (in)equality and language. The journal publishes multidisciplinary yet inclusive research of a high scholarly standard, not published or under consideration elsewhere, and with a strong empirical component.
