Volumes 1-5 were published as The Journal of the Linguistic Association of the Southwest. Volumes 6-30 were published as the Southwest Journal of Linguistics. Volumes 36-41 do not exist due to a delay in publications. Starting with Volume 42, the journal is changing to an open access online format. For back issues you can contact the Editor.

Aims & Scope

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. Proposals for thematic issues and nominations for guest editors are invited.
