Philippine Journal of Linguistics in PEJPebrero 8, 2010
When we talk about linguistics, we’re talking about a very big concept or idea. Linguistics, which is the scientific study of language, is very vague. It generally encompasses different fields or disciplines. Since language is inevitable in all human interactions, it has many practical applications in different fields of study.
Knowledge regarding on language or the field, linguistics itself is very important. There are some organizations in the Philippines that deals on language and linguistics, The Linguistic Society of the Philippines and Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino. These organizations prove that there is a need to study, develop, and understand the language in our own setting.
Linguistic Society of the Philippines (LSP) has an official publication named “Philippine Journal of Linguistics”. This journal comes out yearly in June and December. It publishes original studies in descriptive, comparative, historical, and areal linguistics. Its primary interest deals with linguistic theory but it also publishes papers on application of theory to certain disciplines like sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, anthropological linguistics, etc.
