Transactions of the Philological Society is the oldest scholarly journal devoted to the general study of language and languages that has an unbroken tradition.

It is an International journal publishing evidence-based approaches to all areas of linguistics with a particular focus on the comparative and historical, and inclusive of the widest possible range of languages.

The journal reflects the Philological Society's long-standing interest in comparative and historical linguistics. It also reflects the Society's broad range of interests and welcomes studies of all languages from the perspective of any of the various subdisciplines of descriptive and theoretical linguistics, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics and sociolinguistics, from both synchronic and diachronic perspectives.
