Focus and Scope

The journal is a direct emanation of the linguistic and orientalist components of the Foreign Languages (LILSI) Department of UNIFI – whose scholarly activity and original research it highlights, calling attention to the research and writings of younger scholars whose work has been or is being supervised by the Department, and providing a forum for scholarly debate open to the community of linguists and oriental research-ers in Italy and abroad.
