This unique publication focuses on linguistic issues as they pertain to East Asian languages. It bridges the gap between traditional description and current theoretical research and encourages research that allows these languages to play a significant role in shaping general linguistic theory.

The Journal of East Asian Linguistics (JEAL) features

  • Theoretically oriented work on any aspect of the syntax, semantics, pragmatics, phonology, and morphology of an East Asian language.
  • Comparative work among East Asian languages and/or between an East Asian language and any other languages that contributes to the parametric theory of universal grammar.
  • Formal analysis of any aspect of the grammar at any historical stage of a language or the historical development of any language providing it has a bearing on East Asian languages.
  • Interdisciplinary contributions from psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, and computational linguistics that have clearly highlighted theoretical consequences for the formal study of East Asian languages.
  • C. T. James Huang,
