Journal of World Languages (JWL)

The Journal of World Languages explores the linguistic, communicative and socio-cultural implications of the global spread of major languages and the impact this is having on the world's linguistic mapping. Recognizing that the phenomenon of becoming a world language encompasses a growing number of languages with significant implications for the development of these languages, the Journal of World Languages encourages a comparative approach to the study of the roles of education, the media, the economy, etc. in contributing to the growth of a world language.

It is a cross-disciplinary journal whose coverage of the effects of globalization on languages extends coverage to all world languages.

A bi-annual symposium for the Journal of World Languages is organised worldwide. Click here for the journal's website.
