– articulation, acoustics and perception;

– speech technology, speech recognition, speech synthesis, forensic research and applications;

– realization/manifestation of phonological processes in speech;

– language acquisition;

– foreign languages, bilingualism and multilingualism;

– prosody, syntax;

– pragmatic aspects;

– clinical research, speech and language disorders;

– development of corpus, databases;

– disharmonious phenomena in speech.


Studies for the next volume are expected by 2nd February 2020 (expected release by mid 2020). The language of the submissions should be English or Hungarian. The expected length of the studies is at least 30,000 characters (including spaces). Given that the journal is only published online, there is no upper limit for paper length. Papers will be published based on a double peer-reviewing process.
