Phonological Analysis welcomes submissions of original, high quality scholarship in three areas of phonological research not currently represented in the pages of Language: (a) deep description and analysis of primary phonological data without the necessity of a theoretical focus, (b) in-depth elucidation of assumptions of phonological theories, and (c) detailed computational modeling or simulation of phonological systems. The section aims to expand the scope of Language through contributions to any of these three areas of research. The assessment of a submission’s quality will be based on its alignment with the aims and scope of the section, depth of scholarship, and clarity of writing and argument. Factors such as topical popularity will not be treated as primary criteria for evaluation.
