Journals in sociolinguistics

at Essex University's Sloman Library

A useful list for U. Essex students, by P. Patrick

 

Following is an alphabetized list of some journals useful to sociolinguists which are held in the main library here (or which should be, but aren't!). The info has been copied straight out of their online records and retains that format -- except for the "Notes", which are often mine. Please don't hold me responsible for what they have or don't have! If there's a listing you think I should add, you can email me about it (patrickp@essex.ac.uk), but otherwise correspond directly with the library or consult their online catalogue at http://serlib0.essex.ac.uk/search/

I've tried to include links to linguistics organizations where relevant, also journal websites, also publishers' sites. Below this list is another, obviously incomplete one of some other major linguistics journals in the library.

For a fuller list of linguistics journals and their publishers, please see the fine page maintained by the LSA.
