The Journal of Linguistics, Culture, and Communication is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes theoretically essential topics in linguistics, culture, and communication research. It offers a venue for researchers dedicated to systematic and thorough study from various theoretical backgrounds and areas of interest. All theoretical frameworks can contribute but should be directed to a broad audience. To make their work accessible to scholars from various fields, they should be clear about their assumptions and discovery processes and give enough academic background.

This publication also emphasizes the connection between culture and language. Original research and review papers in the language, social, and cultural sciences are published in this publication. It was founded to preserve the growing interest in the relationship between language and culture in modern social science, and it offers a venue for publications that theorize this relationship. The International Journal of Linguistics, Culture, and Communication also has a crucial publication for all communication experts and decision-makers. This journal focuses on communication research, practice, policy, and theory, presenting the most recent and essential discoveries in language, culture, and communication studies to its readers. The journal is particularly interested in research whose impact crosses disciplinary and sub-field borders because it aims to provide a public venue for scholarship on language, culture, and communication.

The topics covered in the journal pay particular attention, but are not limited to:.

  • Language as a foundation for culture: Language forms the basis for creating and maintaining human cultures, and language differences often reflect important cultural distinctions.
  • Language and communication: Language is used for communication, and understanding language use can help us better understand ourselves and why we behave the way we do. 
  • Language and culture: Language is a part of culture, and culture is often transmitted through language. 
  • Cultural linguistics: This relatively new field examines the interrelationship between language, culture, and conceptualizations, with implications for second language learning and intercultural communication.
  • Language and social learning: Language is learned; to a lesser extent, it is taught, and there is legitimate debate over the extent of this innateness.
  • Language and cultural change: Language is dominant in transmitting culture, and cultural change is often related to language.
  • Language teaching: Language teaching at school presupposes and relies on the prior knowledge of a first language acquired before school age, and it is mainly directed at reading, writing, literature, formal grammar, and alleged standards of correctness.
