The editor controls the activities of the editorial board. The number and the professional structure of the consulting editors correspond with the objectives and scope of the journal. The members of the editorial board function as anonymous reviewers, and guarantee a high quality-level of articles published in the journal. The editor is responsible for the selection and smooth operation of the editorial board.


The editor, the managing editor (Ester Demjanová), and the President of SKASE form the main editorial board responsible for the organizational and technical aspects of the journal and for making decisions concerning the overall conception of the journal.


An article of 10,000 words maximum shall be submitted to the respective editor in an electronic form as an e-mail attachment. Preferably, articles should be written in the WORD 97 editor.

The articles shall be written in English in accordance with the Style Sheet. Any failure to comply with the instructions provided in the Style Sheet may result in rejecting the article. The author is responsible for the grammatical correctness of the text.


Upon submission of an article to the journal, the editor will forward an electronic version of the article to a member of his editorial board whose task is to review the article in an unbiased way. The reviewing process will be anonymous, i.e. the reviewer will not know the author of the article, nor will the author know the reviewer. The reviewer is expected to review an article within a reasonable amount of time, allowing for unforeseen delays.

Based on the review, the editor will decide whether the article meets the high-quality standards of the journal, or is unacceptable. In either case, the author shall be advised of the decision. In the former case, the editor shall mail the review to the author in an electronic way, and the author shall modify the article in accordance with the reviewer’s comments and recommendations. Final decisions concerning acceptance/non-acceptance of an article will be the exclusive decision of the editor. In the case of excessive number of articles, the final selection of articles for the next issue shall be made by the main editorial board.

A number of preliminary remarks are due on some basic points. First of all, as Vachek  (1976: 92) points out

the impact of external (i.e., economic, social and cultural) factors on the non-lexical planes of a language system is usually not a direct, immediate one. Most frequently it is a secondary impact mediated by the operation of some other language system, acting as an exponent of the external factors influencing the affected language system.
