Ever since it was founded in 1961 by Tristano Bolelli, Studi e Saggi Linguistici plays a major role in the linguistic debate in Italy, especially for those scholars working in the field of Indo-European Historical Linguistics and contemporary Theoretical Linguistics.
Today, after 50 years of life, Studi e Saggi Linguistici has a firm position in this field, but it also gained a larger international profile, including well-known foreign scholars as members of its Scientific Committee, and fostering the publication of English-written papers.
The Editors always aim at publishing original and innovative papers, whose quality and exactness are guaranteed by the prestigious Scientific Committee, and by the anonymous peer-review process.
Although a certain preference is accorded to both historical and general Linguistics, in line with the tradition, the Journal welcomes scientific contributions concerning any linguistic field, with no preference or prejudice for particular methodological approaches and theoretical paradigms.
In the last few years, the Journal published wide-ranging papers from typological linguistics to language acquisition, dealt with etymology and with exotic languages, discussed problems of lexicon, as well as of phonetics and neurolinguistics.
Finally, the Journal has two sections, ‘Discussions’ and ‘Reviews’, which provide currently updated information about the most recent works on Linguistic topics that are published in Italy and Abroad.
