Language & History

Language & History in 2009 (formerly the Bulletin of the Henry Sweet Society for the History of Linguistic Ideas) aims to promote the study of the history of all branches of linguistic thought, theoretical and applied, and including non-European traditions. Its fields of interest include the history both of the major subject areas of linguistics and also more specialised topics, such as writing systems, literacy, rhetoric, and the application of linguistic ideas within professional and technical fields.
