UGA Working Papers in Linguistics is an online, peer-reviewed journal published by the Linguistics Society at UGA that showcases current research by student and faculty linguists at UGA in annual issues and other special volumes. Though still in its early stages, the goal of this journal is to be a venue for quality, scholarly work in the field of linguistics, drawing readership from within and outside UGA. 


Call for Papers

We will soon open the call for manuscripts for the fifth volume of the UGA Working Papers in Linguistics, to be published in the 2019–2020 school year. We extend a special invitation to those who present research in Colloquium, at Tiny Talks, or as qualifying papers to consider submitting their work. We also invite students and faculty in the Departments of Linguistics, Romance Languages, Germanic and Slavic Studies, Language and Literacy Education and other related fields to consider submitting thesis-related research, modified term papers, or any other papers that fit within the scope of the journal.

These manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by a team of anonymous reviewers with the goal of having as many non-UGA-affiliated reviewers as possible. In addition to being published online at, we hope to have physical editions of the final volume printed, bound, and donated to the UGA Main Library and the Department of Linguistics library as permanent contributions to our institution.

Submissions should adhere to the these style guidelines and should ideally be between 10 and 15 pages of body text. Contributors may submit electronic versions of their papers via email to
