Newcastle and Northumbria Working Papers in Linguistics


Newcastle and Northumbria  Working Papers in Linguistics (NNWPL) is a yearly journal chiefly managed by postgraduate students at Newcastle University.

NNWPL is a continuation of Newcastle and Durham Working Papers in Linguistics. The first volume appeared in 1993 and was edited by Ianthi-Maria Tsimpli. Regular issues of the journal have followed until the year 1996, where there was an interruption for two consecutive years. The journal started again in 1999. With volume 14 (2008) we ceased to print hardcopies. NNWPL is now an e-journal, aiming to publicise research of CRiLLS, as well as external contributions.
