The journal of Language and Linguistics has been published by the Linguistics Department, the Faculty of Liberal Arts, Thammasat University, since 1982 in order to provide a forum for scholars in the fields of language and linguistics who wish to publish, in Thai or English, academic works in forms of research papers, academic articles and book reviews. The topics accepted by the editorial board include those concerning theoretical linguistics and applied linguistics, language and communication, and language teaching and learning, which contribute new findings or issues in the modus operandi of each particular field and meet international standards. The journal of Language and Linguistics strictly abides by the codes of the Thai-Journal Citation Index Centre (TCI) and undergoes an evaluation process of double-blind peer review. The journal of Language and Linguistics is a biannual publication: issue 1 (January-June) and issue 2 (July-December).

Note. An invited paper is a manuscript (original research article, academic article, or review) solicited by the journal's editor to an author or group of authors who is an expert in a specific field (based on the author's reputation, expertise, or previous work). A publication from such author(s) is used to help the journal highlight new insights and specific areas of research related to linguistics or applied linguistics. Invited papers are subject to the standard peer-review process (by the editor and at least two members of the Editorial Board) before being accepted for publication.
