Travaux du Cercle Linguistique de Copenhague

Travaux du Cercle de Linguistique Copenhague (TCLC) is a monographic series associated with the Linguistic Circle of Copenhagen. TCLC publishes scientific works that are too extensive to be published as articles. All eligible manuscripts will be subject to thorough review and revision.

Like Acta Linguistica Hafniensia, TCLC is rooted in European structuralism and in the special functional variant which characterizes the work of the Linguistic Circle of Copenhagen.

Manuscripts should be sent to editor Line Burholt Kristensen for review. TCLC accepts manuscripts from a broad range of linguistic topics and approaches, if the manuscript is of interest to the Linguistic Circle of Copenhagen and to an international readership. Submissions must be written in English or (upon agreement with the editor) in another major language.
