Language Problems and Language Planning


Language Problems and Language Planning

Language Problems and Language Planning (LPLP) is a linguistic journal published by the John Benjamins Publishing Company, in cooperation with the Center for Research and Documentation on World Language Problems. Its core topics are issues of language policy as well as economic and sociological aspects of linguistics.

The journal has existed in its present form since 1977. A predecessor journal, called "La monda lingvo-problemo", had appeared since 1969 at Mouton, and been edited by Victor Sadler (1969–1972) and Richard E. Wood (1973–1976).

While many articles are in English, the journal is open for articles written in any language.

The journal is peer reviewed and listed in several scientific indexes. The present board of editors is composed of Probal Das Gupta, Marc van Oostendorp and Humphrey Tonkin.
