  • Journal Info Language Description: Language, a journal of the Linguistic Society of America (LSA), has appeared continuously since 1925 (4 issues per year). It publishes scholarly articles that report on original research covering the field of linguistics broadly, thus treating topics that include, among others, linguistic theory (phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics); language description; language in its social setting; the history of individual languages; language acquisition; experimentation on language perception, production, and processing; computational modeling of language; and the history of linguistics. Language also publishes research reports, discussion notes, and reviews and, beginning in 2013, has expanded to include digital content in four online-only sections: Perspectives, Phonological Analysis, Language and Public Policy, and Teaching Linguistics. Language also included the LSA Bulletin newsletter as a supplement from 1930 - 1969. Coverage: 1925-2013 (Vol. 1, No. 1 - Vol. 89, No. 4) Moving Wall: 5 years (What is the moving wall?)

    The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
    Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
    For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.

    Terms Related to the Moving Wall
    Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
    Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
    Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been combined with another title.
