Lexis is hosted by the Centre d’Études Linguistiques – Corpus, Discours et Sociétés (CEL – Linguistics Research Center) at the University of Lyon (Jean Moulin Lyon 3) led by Prof. Denis Jamet. If the principal aim of the journal is the study of the English lexicon (its formation, its morphology, its evolution, its links with society, with culture, etc.), the journal could also focus on the links between lexicology and morphology, phonology, syntax, stylistics, etc. Contrastive studies – especially with French – can also be dealt with. The journal will accept articles in English and in French. Abstracts or articles will be double-blind peer-reviewed by two experts from the scientific committee. Proposals should contain bibliographical references, keywords (in French and in English), and an abstract (5.000 characters maximum).
