Journal of Quantitative LinguisticsThe Journal of Quantitative Linguistics (JQL) is an international forum for the publication and discussion of research on the quantitative characteristics of language and text in an exact mathematical form. Specifically, JQL publishes on:
- Observations and descriptions of all aspects of language and text phenomena including the areas of psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, dialectology, pragmatics, etc. as far as they use quantitative mathematical methods (probability theory, stochastic processes, differential and difference equations, furry logics and set theory, function theory etc.), on all levels of linguistic analysis.
- Applications of methods, models, or findings from quantitative linguistics to problems of natural language processing, machine translation, language teaching, documentation and information retrieval.
- Methodological problems of linguistic measurement, model construction, sampling and test theory.
- Epistemological issues such as explanation of language and text phenomena, contributions to theory construction, systems theory, philosophy of science.

JQL and IQLA:The Journal of Quantitative Linguistics was founded in 1994 by its current editor. When the International Quantitative Linguistics Association was founded somewhat later in the same year, a contract was made between the editor, the Association, and the publisher. This contract regulates the role of JQL as the official journal of IQLA.
IQLA members can subscribe to the journal under considerably favourable conditions.
