Natural Language and Linguistic Theory provides a forum for the discussion of theoretical research that pays close attention to natural language data so as to provide a channel of communication between researchers of a variety of points of view. The journal actively seeks to bridge the gap between descriptive work and work of a highly theoretical less empirically oriented nature. In attempting to strike this balance a primary goal of the journal is to encourage work which makes complex language data accessible to those unfamiliar with the language area being studied and work which makes complex theoretical positions more accessible to those working outside the theoretical framework under review. The journal is structured to include: theoretically oriented work on the syntax semantics phonology and the lexicon of natural language; interdisciplinary contributions written with theoretical linguists in mind; surveys of recent theoretical developments which facilitate accessibility for a graduate student readership; reactions/replies to recent papers; brief notes comments or observations concerning languages or theoretical points; letters to the editors; book reviews of important linguistics titles; special topic issues.
