Journal of Child Language publishes articles on all aspects of the scientific study of language behaviour in children, the principles which underlie it, and the theories which may account for it. The international range of authors and breadth of coverage allow the journal to forge links between many different areas of research including psychology, linguistics, cognitive science and anthropology.

This interdisciplinary approach spans a wide range of interests: phonology, phonetics, morphology, syntax, vocabulary, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, or any other recognised facet of language study. In addition to articles and book reviews, Journal of Child Language contains a ‘Notes’ section and an occasional section containing a review article plus commentaries by a range of other researchers.

Journal of Child Language is published by Cambridge University Press.
