Note from the Editor

2020 has been a tough year so far and continued uncertainty makes life an ongoing challenge for all. We understand how difficult it has been for academics to constantly adapt to the changing teaching and researching environment and hope we can continue to work in a supportive way both with our valued authors and with new emerging scholars and to publish useful and well-designed resources for courses.
We are a global team of commissioning editors, publishers and assistants. If you have a new book idea which you would like to be considered for inclusion in the Routledge Linguistics publishing programme, please contact me at [email protected] and I will put you in touch with the right editor for your proposal.

New Titles

We have been so excited to publish a great range of titles this month, from Touch in Social Interaction, making us all nostalgic about physical connection with others, to Queer Theory in Translation Studies in the New Perspectives on Translation and Interpreting series.
