Academic Journal of Modern Philology is a scientific journal oriented towards interdisciplinary studies. AJMP has been included in the register of journals published by The Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education with 70 points awarded. The journal seeks original articles on linguistics with special focus on comparative studies, anthropological linguistics, science of cognition, social communication and literary studies. Since the founding of the journal in 2012, it has been our goal to foster the development of linguistic studies through an open exchange of ideas, while maintaining the highest standards of academic publishing. Contributions are subject to a double-blind peer reviews for authenticity, ethical issues and usefulness. The reviewing procedure is supervised by the International Advisory Board. The articles are published mainly in English, German, French and Polish. Academic Journal of Modern Philology is an open access journal published annually by the Committee for Philology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Wrocław Branch and the College for Interdisciplinary Studies, University of Wrocław.


The idea for this text was dictated by the need to develop a comprehensive taxonomy of Language Anthropology, andin particular the place occupied by Anthropological Linguistics in this classification. The first extensive attempts todetermine the exact place that Anthropological Linguistics occupies in this taxonomy were presented over a decadeago (Chruszczewski 2010, 2011), and they were later developed and modified (Chruszczewski 2018). The presentclassification of Anthropological Linguistics is based upon the current state of knowledge and above all on researchundertaken in numerous scientific centers around the world where it is obvious that language is an integral partof human culture and it is recognized that both of the phenomena influence each other and that the most reliableresults can be obtained by studying language and culture simultaneously. It goes without saying that scholars arethinking, hard-working and creative beings. Therefore, the increase and updating of knowledge, including researchfields and disciplines, is very large and takes place very quickly. Many working research ideas from not so far agoare already recognized and autonomous scientific disciplines. Hence, I share the opinion of those researchers whobelieve that from time to time it is necessary to modernize, re-describe and explain anew the classification of thedisciplines in which we work, so that the readers of our works can see how we ourselves understand the discipline ofour core research. On the one hand the following classification of Anthropological Linguistics can be seen as exactlythis kind of explanation of how the author of the paper understands this research field, and on the other hand it canbe seen also as an open invitation for discussion.
