Description: Jos Journal of the English Language (JJEL) is coming of age. For the very first time in its young but illustrious history, nearly 100 per cent of the contributions assembled in this issue are on language: from grammar, composition, meaning, discourse studies, phonology and phonotactics to the application of language in the analysis of literary texts. This has always been the goal, to focus on language studies. The emergence of a sister journal on oral and written literature within the same space will further ease the pressure to accommodate essays in this journal that do not focus on language studies. In previous issues, we experienced a slow response to the call for submissions. This meant that we could not assemble enough essays that met the journal's standards for publication. However, when we were close to the advertised publication date, we experienced a flood of submissions, exciting ones too. The effect was a delay due to additional processing time to accommodate more contributions. This is also improving. It seems too that contributors to the journal h a v e a l s o i m p r o v e d i n t h e i r communication, especially in responding to comments from reviewers. Delays from contributors often frustrate the efforts to publish on schedule. We think that these trends will only get better, enabling the journal to provide a safe academic space for sharing research findings on emerging issues in the study of language. We are committed to this cause and would do whatever is needed to keep the light shining. Our turn-around time is also reducing with each issue. So, we are confident that the June 2021 issue will also be ready for press soon, as we are already receiving submissions. Enjoy the array of exciting essays on offer
