The Journal of Modern Languages (JML) is a peer-reviewed journal published by the Faculty of Languages and Linguistics at the University of Malaya. Founded in 1985 at the University of Malaya, the JML is dedicated to the publication of significant research findings of an empirical, experimental or conceptual nature in the broad field of modern language studies.
The Journal produces one regular issue plus a special issue annually. Special issues address linguistic themes relevant to South East Asia and the Pacific Rim, especially the languages of the region. The language of publication is normally English, but we may accept contributions in Malay for special issues.
The JML welcomes papers addressing critical analyses of modern languages from various fields of discipline including:
- General Linguistics
- Descriptive Linguistics
- Applied Linguistics
- Language maintenance and death
- Translation and interpretation
- Discourse and conversational analyses
We are pleased to introduce a new section in our Journal called \'Research Notes\'. We welcome submission of smaller scaled research papers in progress that provide substantive and critical directions in their research. Examples include innovative research methodologies, projections of prospective findings and ways to test critical assumptions of literature. Research Notes will be peer reviewed.
The first authors of selected papers will be given free off-prints and a PDF file.
