Lingvisticae Investigationes is a 40-year-old international journal founded by Maurice Gross. It publishes original articles dealing with the lexicon, grammar, phonology, pragmatics and semantics. It focuses on studies with a formal approach allowing NLP applications and researches that describe resources such as grammars, corpora and electronic dictionaries constructed on a linguistic basis. Articles may deal with any language, though a large proportion are devoted to the study of French. The journal also publishes book reviews. Contributions are in English and French.

Free online sample: volume 37:1 (2014).

The journal has an accompanying book series entitled Lingvisticae Investigationes Supplementa.
