THE INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF THE LINGUISTIC
ASSOCIATION OF THE SOUTHWEST (LASSO)
Each volume of the International Journal of the Linguistic Association of the Southwest
(IJLASSO), formerly the Southwest Journal of Linguistics (SWJL), is published in two numbers, one in June and one in December.
The journal publishes papers across a broad range of topics in linguistics,
though research papers dealing with the languages of the southwestern
United States and northern Mexico are especially encouraged. The journal
also publishes scholarly reviews of the literature, book reviews, and
occasional commentary on topics of concern to the journal's readership.
