This epilogue to the 30-year Commemorative Issue of the Journal of Language and Social Psychology draws on four articles represented in this Issue to demonstrate the role this journal, in conjunction with the International Association of Language and Social Psychology, has had in identifying, examining, and shaping a research agenda of socially significant issues. Exigencies of the 21st century are examined to offer predictions for the future of the subdiscipline of the social psychology of language and make recommendations of topics for study.
