The journal promotes sociolinguistics as a thoroughly linguistic and thoroughly social-scientific endeavour and many of its articles build or critique sociolinguistic theory, and the application of recent social theory to language data and issues.
The journal is concerned with language in all its dimensions, macro and micro, as formal features or abstract discourses, as situated talk or written text.
Data in published articles represent a wide range of languages, regions and situations - from Tigrinya to Tamil, from Guatemala to Japan, from court interpreting to hip-hop. Publishing 720 pages per year in 5 issues, the Journal of Sociolinguistics is managed in ICDC by Andy Gibson and copy-edited by Trish Brothers.
