In connection with that definition, Anglicist is set as a journal which is concerned with all aspects of the English Language and Linguistics.

The topics of formal linguistics include, but are not limited to: phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and discourse analysis. The applied linguistics may include English language teaching, English language learning, second language acquisition, language testing, assessment, computer-assisted language learning, teacher education, translation, lexicography, corpus linguistics, and English for Special Purposes. The interdisciplinary fields, which present the close relationship between linguistics and other disciplines, embrace the topics on sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, dialectology, computational linguistics, anthropolinguistics, first language acquisition, multimodal communication, language policy, and language ideology. The language of publication is English, but the language discussed in the submitted articles may include other languages as well.
