Functions of Language

Published/Hosted by John Benjamins Publishing Company. ISSN (printed): 0929-998X. ISSN (electronic): 1569-9765.

Functions of Language is an international journal of linguistics which explores the functional perspective to the study of language-as-system and of texts-in-context. With special reference to the Prague School and Neo-Firthian functional inheritances, it holds up for discussion theoretical issues and areas of linguistic description relevant to the linguistic community at large, such as: intrinsic and extrinsic functionalism; the interaction between paradigm and syntagm (or "system" and "structure") in the modelling of linguistic organization, and the quantitative study of system and text, to mention a few. Functions of Language promotes the constructive interaction between theoretical and descriptive findings, and applied research in such fields as educational linguistics, stylistics, translation, artificial intelligence, and communication studies.
