<p>The <em>Journal of Historical Pragmatics</em> provides an interdisciplinary forum for theoretical, empirical and methodological work at the intersection of pragmatics and historical linguistics. The editorial focus is on socio-historical and pragmatic aspects of historical texts in their sociocultural context of communication (e.g. conversational principles, politeness strategies, or speech acts) and on diachronic pragmatics as seen in linguistic processes such as grammaticalization or discoursization.</p><p>Contributions draw on data from literary or non-literary sources and from any language. In addition to contributions with a strictly pragmatic or discourse analytical perspective, it also includes contributions with a more sociolinguistic or semantic approach. However, the focus of the articles is always on the communicative use of language.</p><p>The <em>Journal of Historical Pragmatics</em> contains original articles, research reports and book reviews. Occasionally focus-on issues are published on specific topics within the editorial scope of the journal.</p><p>The <em>Journal of Historical Pragmatics</em> invites relevant contributions. Authors are advised to consult the Guidelines. Abstracts of contributions may be sent to both editors, preferably via email.</p>
