Short Description

ExELL (Explorations in English Language and Linguistics) is an international peer-reviewed electronic journal, published as a joint project of the School of English Studies of the University Josip Juraj Strossmayer Osijek, Croatia and English Language and Literature Department of Tuzla University from Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The aim of the journal is to promote and facilitate academic exchange in English theoretical and applied linguistics. Our mission is to provide a linguistics journal based on data drawn from the English language that would reflect a wide range of interests and opinions. We want to create opportunities for scholarly communication by encouraging the dissemination of theoretical and research-informed insights using the Internet as a medium in order to make linguistics accessible to the widest possible audience.

The journal will offer a wide range of theoretical, methodological, and educational approaches to English. We encourage submission of various topics about the English language and  linguistics, such as: theoretical and descriptive approaches to English, synchronic and diachronic variability of English, cognitive approaches to English, discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, contrastive linguistics, applied linguistics, ELT/TEFL/ESP, second language acquisition, translation studies, the structure of contemporary varieties of English (phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics) and other topics related to exploration of English language and linguistics.

The journal is interested in papers which focus on defining new problems for the study of the English language and linguistics, providing new insights into the known problems and developing new methodologies to approach old and new problems.

Submission guidelines

Instruction for Authors
Contributions should be sent as an e-mail attachment in electronic form to exell@untz.ba
All contributions should be in English.
Contributions should be prepared using the following format:
Paper size: custom page size 17 cm x 24 cm
Spacing: single (before 0, after 3mm)
Alignment: justified
Font: Book Antiqua 10
Use footnotes rather than endnotes.
Use the following order and numbering of pages:
Page 0: title and subtitle; (Book Antiqua 18, bold, centered)
Page 1: title and subtitle; (Book Antiqua 18, bold, centered)
authors’ names and affiliations; (Book Antiqua 14, centered)
abstract and keywords (up to 120 words; Book Antiqua 8)
Page 2 etc.: body of the work.
References: beginning on a new page.
Last page: complete authors’ addresses (including e-mail addresses).
Any special matter (i.e. drawings, tables, figures) that could not be integrated into the text
should be added on a separate page.
All sections and subsections in the text should be numbered with Arabic numerals (1. / 1.1.
/ 1.1.1.;). The following font types should be used for section titles at the different levels:
1. Book Antiqua 12, Bold, single (before 24pt, after 12 pt)
1.1. Book Antiqua 11, Number in bold but the title in bold italic (before 18pt, after 6 pt)
1.1.2. Book Antiqua 11, Number in regular but the title in italic (before 18pt, after 6 pt)
Section titles should be preceded by two blank lines and followed by one blank line. Indent
the first line of each paragraph by 0.5 cm, except for the first paragraph of a new section.
Use italics for all cited linguistic forms, examples in the text and foreign terms. Do not
use italics for emphasis, or to mark foreign words that have entered common usage.
Use small capitals to mark a technical term at its first use or definition (if necessary), or to
give emphasis to a word or phrase in the text.
Within the text, give only a brief citation in parentheses consisting of the author’s surname,
the year of publication, and page number(s) where relevant: (Langacker, 1987) or (Dirven,
1993: 10). If a cited publication has more than two authors, use the surname of the first
author, followed by ”et al”. If the author’s name is part of the text, then use this form: Labov
(1973: 340) comments …
You may also use abbreviations if necessary. They should be explained in the bibliography,
for example OED for Oxford English Dictionary.
A quotation of fewer than 40 words should be enclosed in double quotation marks and
should be incorporated into the formal structure of the sentence. A lengthier quotation of
40 or more words should appear separated from the surrounding text, with a blank line
before and after, with each line indented five spaces from the left margin. They should be
printed in font size 10, without quotation marks. Use three unspaced periods in square
brackets [...] to indicate ellipsis.
Words or phrases in languages other than English should be in italics and accompanied by
a translation between single quotes. E.g., nuit ‘night.’
Examples should be numbered with Arabic numerals between parentheses and set apart
from the main body of the text by leaving spaces before and after. Use lowercase letters to
group sets of related items. In the text, refer to numbered items as (2), (2a), (2a,b), (2 a-b),
or (2) b.
Examples from languages other than English should be accompanied, if necessary, by a
word-by-word or morpheme-by-morpheme gloss, as appropriate, and by a translation
between single quotes as well. Align word-for-word or morpheme-by-morpheme glosses of
example phrases or sentences with the beginning of each original word, for example:
(1) Dragi kolege, bit ću kratak.
Dear colleagues be will-1sg brief.
’Dear colleagues, I’ll be brief.’
At the end of the manuscript provide a full bibliography, beginning on a separate page with
the heading References, (left justified). Entries should be organized alphabetically by
surnames of authors. Use a hanging indent style, with the first line of the reference flush
against the left margin and subsequent lines indented by 1 cm. Font: Book Antiqua 9,
Spacing: single (before 0 pt, after 0pt). List multiple works by the same author in
ascending chronological order. Use suffixed letters a, b, c, etc. to distinguish more than one
item published by a single author in the same year. If more than one article i s cited from
one book, list the book as a separate entry under the editor’s name, with crossreferences to
the book in the entries for each article.
Each entry should contain the following elements in the order and punctuation given:
