Cambridge Occasional Papers in Lingusitics

About: Aims & Scope

COPiL is an online journal of works in progress by staff, students and researchers working in linguistics and related disciplines throughout the University of Cambridge. COPiL also hosts proceedings of workshops and conferences associated with TAL. In addition to full-length papers, shorter contributions (squibs) and review articles are encouraged.

COPiL is an ideal forum for disseminating pre-print work and gaining valuable feedback. However, it is anticipated that the authors will ultimately submit their work to a peer-reviewed journal (or other publication).

We welcome submissions from the following fields:

  • Syntax
  • Phonetics
  • Phonology
  • Morphology
  • Semantics
  • Pragmatics
  • Historical Linguistics (including Classics)
  • Language Acquisition
  • Computational Linguistics
  • Psycholinguistics
  • Experimental Linguistics
  • Forensic Linguistics
  • Sociolinguistics
