First Language is a forum for research into how children acquire their first language, and the application of that research into practice.
First Language publishes original research, theoretical articles, review articles and book reviews in all areas of first language acquisition. Age groups studied range from neonates to adolescents.
Multidisciplinary in scope
Child language research is multidisciplinary and this is reflected in the contents of the journal: research from diverse theoretical and methodological traditions is welcome. Authors from a wide range of disciplines - including psychology, linguistics, anthropology, cognitive science, neuroscience, communication, sociology and education - are regularly represented in our pages. Empirical papers range from individual case studies, through experiments, observational/ naturalistic, analyses of CHILDES corpora, to parental surveys.
The journal encourages submissions in all of the following areas:
Potential authors who are unsure of the relevance of their work to the journal's scope are welcome to contact the Editor directly for advice.
First Language occasionally publishes special issues devoted to topics of pressing interest. These are usually Guest Edited by prominent researchers in the relevant areas. Recent examples include:
