The International Association for the Integrational Study of Language and Communication was founded in 1998. Integrationist Notes and Papers began in 2003 as an occasional series of leaflets circulated to IAISLC members. Its purpose was to give a brief position statement or comment, from an integrational perspective, on a variety of controversial issues, in order to provoke further discussion and to show that integrationism is not restricted to topics of interest solely to linguists.
Integrationist Notes and Papers 2003-2005 containing numbers 1 to 15 of these texts was published in 2006 (ISBN 0-9546099- 4-8). The present volume continues the series.
