Natural Language & Linguistic Theory (often abbreviated NLLT), is a leading international peer-reviewed quarterly journal in theoretical linguistics, founded in 1983 and currently published by Springer Netherlands (by Kluwer Academic Publishers before 2004). It is mainly devoted to work in generative linguistics, and features replies and book reviews in addition to the main research articles. Its current editor-in-chief is Marcel Den Dikken (CUNY Graduate Center).

A well-known feature of the journal is its occasional 'Topic-Comment' column (initiated by Geoffrey K. Pullum), in which a contributor presents a personal, sometimes controversial, opinion on some aspect of the field. The best-known recent example is the dispute over whether Noam Chomsky's Minimalist Program satisfies basic criteria of scientific method, raised by Shalom Lappin, Robert D. Levine and David E. Johnson and joined by Anders Holmberg, Eric Reuland, Ian Roberts, Massimo Piattelli-Palmarini and Juan Uriagereka in the issues 18.3 (August 2000),[1] 18.4 (November 2000) [2] and 19.4 (November 2001).[3]

The journal can be accessed online with subscription via SpringerLink.
