Babel is a magazine for all linguists and lovers of language. Published quarterly in print and digital editions, each issue covers a wide range of linguistic topics, with articles and regular features written by world-class linguists. Babel aims to make cutting-edge research both accessible and fun, and we are very proud to have received the approval of one Stephen Fry, who tweeted us to say “If you love language you’ll be blown away by Babel magazine: for pros & all language enthusiasts”!


Babel is produced by linguists at the University of Huddersfield with support from experts around the world including our Linguistic Consultant, Professor David Crystal. We are always looking for ways to involve more readers and linguists – you can get in touch by email if you’re a linguist who would like to contribute a reader with suggestions (possible questions for our ‘Ask a Linguist’ feature are especially welcome!).


You can find out more about Babel and how to subscribe at our website, where you can read issue 1 for free. Wou can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, where we aim to keep you up to date with the latest language news from around the world.
