Issues in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics

This book series is peer reviewed and indexed in: Scopus

Romance linguists are by definition not only aligned with their theoretical paradigm (e.g. usage-based sociolinguists to generative grammarians), but rather there is a sense of a larger community to which all Romance linguists belong by virtue of the languages studied. Spanish and Portuguese are two of the top ten most widely spoken languages in the world. They are by far the largest two in the Romance family of languages in terms of number of speakers. It is fair to say that there is a strong sub-community of Romance linguists also aligned by virtue of their research foci on Spanish and Portuguese. Beyond providing high quality work applicable to the linguistic sciences in general, the aforementioned community of Hispanic and Lusophone linguists is precisely the audience to which we believe this book series will appeal to the most.

The aim of this book series is to provide a single home for the highest quality monographs and edited volumes pertaining to Hispanic and Lusophone linguistics. In an effort to be as inclusive as possible, the series hopes to include volumes that represent the many sub-fields and paradigms of linguistics that do high quality research targeting Iberian Romance languages. We seek projects pertaining to all dialects in the world where these languages (co-)exist (e.g. Europe, South and North America, Africa) as well as projects on the acquisition of these languages anywhere Spanish and Portuguese are acquired in childhood or adulthood. Because our goal is to consider manuscripts from all relevant linguistic approaches, the common thread across the books within this series will be the languages themselves. Although we anticipate that the majority of the books will focus on Spanish and Portuguese, for obvious reasons, we would like to encourage book proposals that engage other Iberian-Romance languages in Europe (e.g., Galician, Catalan, Aragonese, etc.) and/or examine Spanish and Portuguese in their co-existence with other non-Romance languages in Europe (e.g. Basque), indigenous languages in Latin America, English in North America, and other national and regional languages across the Hispanic and Lusophone world. Projects that engage several of these languages together are especially welcome. We will consider proposals that focus on formal syntax, semantics, morphology, phonetics/phonology, pragmatics from any established research paradigm, as well as psycholinguistics, language acquisition, historical linguistics, applied linguistics and sociolinguistics. Please note that proposals for conference proceedings will not be considered, however proposals for strong thematic collections are welcome. The editorial board is comprised of experts in all of the aforementioned fields.

To submit a book proposal, you may email your proposal to the series editors at: kgeeslin at and msolon at For information of what the book proposal (single authored and edited volumes alike) should include, please see our Guidelines for book proposals. The editor makes decisions on acceptance of the book proposal in consultation with the relevant members of the editorial board given the topic of the proposed project.
