Alicante Journal of English Studies (Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses) is an internationally distributed and well-indexed journal on English Studies published annually (since 1988) by the University of Alicante, Spain. It is available both in paper and electronic formats. Previous issues of the journal can be accessed at the Alicante Journal of English Studies web page at <>

Alicante Journal of English Studies is currently preparing a Special Issue on the Language of Sports and Adventure Tourism to appear at the end of 2019.

It invites contributions on a variety of aspects of the language of sports and adventure tourism: lexis, semantics, stylistics, discourse analysis, language contact, etc. Contributions should focus on the English language, either in itself, related to, or in comparison or contrast with other language(s).

The notion of “sports” is here to be interpreted as activities in which athletes, players or teams compete against each other, typically involving physical effort. Examples include athletics, boxing, gymnastics, tennis and wrestling, as well as basketball, football, floorball, ice hockey and volleyball (but not billiards, darts, shooting, etc.). By “adventure tourism” we understand outdoor activities relying on features of the natural terrain, and generally requiring specialized equipment (cf. Buckley 2006). Such activities are illustrated by rafting, kayaking, diving, surfing, snowboarding, ice climbing, mountaineering, horse riding as well as various aerial adventures.

In addition to scholarly articles, proposals for book reviews of recent publications related to the field of sports and adventure tourism language are also welcome.

Submissions will be submitted to a double-blind peer-reviewed panel.

Abstracts outlining problematization, methodology and potential conclusions (approx. 400 words, not including bibliographical references) should be submitted before December 30th, 2018 to
