The Mediterranean Language Review is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed forum for the investigation of language and culture in the Mediterranean. Articles, reviews and review articles address issues relating to multiple aspects of Mediterranean languages, past and present. Among these are essays discussing linguistic contact and diffusion in the Mediterranean area and its hinterland, as well as interaction of language and culture in the region. Sociolinguistic aspects, religion and language, and linguistic stratification with areal typology and the languages of the Mediterranean littoral are focused on. Finally, the historical evolution and present state of languages spoken by small nations and ethnic minorities, ethnolinguistic studies on island communities in the Mediterranean, the interlinguas Kultursprachen and Mediterranean Lingua Franca, as well as approaches to Mediterranean lexicology sum up the journal’s objects of study.
