The English Language Research Centre was created in 1986, in part, to encourage and facilitate the continued investigation of the English language and cognate topics in Newfoundland. Current and future numbers of Regional Language Studies...Newfoundland are available through Memorial University's Open Access journals at:

Regional Language Studies provides information on  projects ongoing in the Centre and articles and notes under the principal research headings of ELRC: the English language in its historical, regional, and social dimensions, place-names and cartographic history, family names, and editing of Newfoundland texts. Articles on non-English language topics in the Newfoundland and Labrador context are also encouraged. The journal publishes papers by academics, students, and others on topics relating to Newfoundland languages.
