About the Journal


Macrolinguistics and Microlinguistics (MaMi) Journal is a quarterly publication for all those involved in linguistics, whether as micro linguistics and macro linguistics or as an international Lingua Franca. The Journal links the everyday concerns of practitioners and linguists with insights gained from relevant academic disciplines such as linguistics, culture, and language.

MaMi Journal aims to provide a medium for an informed discussion of the principles and practice which explore, investigate, elaborate about the phenomenon for linguistics and culture around the world. It also provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas among members of the profession worldwide. MaMi Journal publishes research into linguistics with relevance to real-world issues. The journal is keen to help make connections between scholarly discourses, theories, and research methods from a broad range of linguistic and other relevant areas of study. The journal welcomes contributions that critically reflect on current, cutting edge theory and practice in the linguistics field.

The Editor of MaMi Journal is supported by an Advisory Board which assists the Editor in guiding the development of the Journal, and by an Editorial Panel whose members referee submissions.

The journal's Forum section is intended to stimulate debate between authors and the wider community of linguists and to afford a quicker turnaround time for short pieces. Forum pieces are typically a commentary on research issues or professional practices or responses to a published article. Forum pieces are required to exhibit originality, timeliness and a contribution to, or stimulation of, a current debate. The journal also contains a Review section.
