Studies in the Linguistics Sciences


Welcome to Studies in the Linguistic Sciences: Illinois Working Papers! SLS is the online, open-access working papers of the Linguistics Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We began publication in print form in 1971 and have since grown into an ongoing, online working papers journal.
