Studies in Language Change presents empirically based research that extends knowledge about historical relations among the world's languages without restriction to any particular language family or region. While not devoted explicitly to theoretical explanations, the series hopes to contribute to the advancement in understandings of language change as well as adding to the store of well-analyzed historical-comparative data on the world's languages.
From 2012 SLC becomes a series published by De Gruyter Mouton. This change was occasioned by Pacific Linguistics' own transformation into a De Gruyter Mouton series, but Studies in Language Change is now a De Gruyter Mouton series independent of Pacific Linguistics. This fulfils the editors' wish that SLC should welcome manuscripts on language change worldwide and that its publications should have the exposure to a wider audience that its association with a major publisher in linguistics will provide.
SLC's publishing procedures will now be those of De Gruyter Mouton. The procedure for submitting book proposals is available here.
Procedures for submitting camera ready copy are on the De Gruyter Mouton website here. Under the heading Templates three types of Microsoft Word template are provided: for monographs, for edited works, and for the Mouton Grammar Library. There is also a LaTeX template. Beneath these are links to Mouton's general style sheet and the Mouton Grammar Library stylesheet. Authors should choose the style sheet and template which most closely matches their needs: if it is a grammar, then choose the Mouton Grammar Library style sheet and template.
