Articles, reviews, news, anniversaries and obituaries are accepted in English, German, French, Spanish or Italian. Authors using a non-native language are requested to have their contribution carefully checked by a native speaker before submitting it. All contributions must be original and previously unpublished articles, not currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The submitted manuscripts are required in ready-to-print form. Only minimal corrections can be made in the proofs.
The author’s name, affiliation, address (in the language of the article) and ORCID-ID should be enclosed in a separate file, not in the contribution itself.
All contributions submitted to Linguistica Pragensia will be considered and reviewed anonymously by two reviewers. Complete issues are made available online: linguisticapragensia.ff.cuni.cz.
Articles should include an abstract of 100–150 words and a list of 5 keywords in the language of the article and in English. The abstract should summarize the content of the entire article. Sections in articles should have numbered headings, paragraphs should be indented.
Submission: Electronically as e-mail attachments (in Word .doc or .docx files) to the editors (firstname.lastname@example.org). All contributions by non-native speakers of the language of the contribution must be proofread prior to submission. Any contribution deemed as not meeting this criterion will be returned to its author.
Length: Articles: up to 9000 words; longer articles will be considered (contact the editor). Reviews: up to 2500 words.
Do not use any pre-set or personal styles for text formatting. Remove all such styles prior to submission.
Figures and photographs must be reproducible originals in high resolution (300 dpi or higher) and should be submitted in separate files, carefully numbered and labelled. Tables must have titles, be numbered and be referred to in the text.
Use Times New Roman, 12-point, 1.5 spacing, 3.5 cm margin on the left side, 2.5 on all other sides throughout.
Use “curved” quotation marks, single quotation marks for ‘citations’ within other citations, apostrophes (’) rather than accents. Use tabulator (not spacebar) for aligning paragraphs, indenting or positioning the text on the page. Examples should be numbered and indented. Place titles of tables above the table, and figure captions below the figure.
Notes: use footnotes, not endnotes, in a minimal number.
References in the text are cited by giving the name/s of the author/s, the year of publication, and pagination where relevant, e.g.: …as noted by in Quirk et al. (1985: 85–86); …the text (cf.
