Aim and Scope

The Li Fang-Kuei Society for Chinese Linguistics 紀念李方桂先生中國語言學研究學會, named in honor of a consummate scholar who made monumental contributions in Chinese, Tibetan, Tai and American Indian linguistics, was established in Seattle on October 1, 2003 by a group including Professor Li Fang-Kuei’s family members, former students, friends, colleagues, and admirers. The Society launched its flagship journal, Bulletin of Chinese Linguistics in May 2006 together with the Center for Chinese Linguistics of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology as a permanent tribute to Professor Li Fang-Kuei. The Bulletin of Chinese Linguistics plays a vital role in the Society’s mission to foster high-quality research in Chinese linguistics and related fields. Its areas of interest include Sino-Tibetan and other languages related to Chinese such as Tibeto-Burman and Tai-Kradai. Published biannually, the journal provides a global forum for scholarly exchanges to continue the great tradition embodied and fostered by Professor Li, and to shed new light and explore new horizons in historical, comparative, and typological studies. All articles are peer-reviewed and are published in either English or Chinese.
