A journal for the theory of language and language cultivation founded in 1935 by the Prague Linguistic Circle
A special emphasis on theory as well as the continuation and development of the Prague School structuralist and functionalist tradition make SLOVO A SLOVESNOST the most significant Czech linguistic journal. The journal is also among the most important linguistic and semiotic journals in the Central European region. Oriented toward the presentation of local and Central European research as well as its significance in relation to international trends, it focuses on all areas of structural linguistics as well as issues of language variation, style and language cultivation (language planning), to name a few. It serves as the primary representative of Czech language studies among academic journals and is also widely read by scholars of Slavic studies abroad.
Since its founding in 1935 by the Prague Linguistic Circle, SLOVO A SLOVESNOST has been published quarterly. Contributions include original articles, discussions and reviews of current Czech and international linguistic literature. The language of publication is Czech and occasionally other languages, in particular English. Articles for potential publication are subjected to an anonymous (“double-blind”) peer review process with at least two reviewers. Published articles are preceded by English abstracts, follow international citation norms and may include summaries in other foreign languages.
