FYI Body: My co-editor (Thomas Hills) and I (Michael Vitevitch) are making one last push for submissions to a special issue of the on-line, open access journal Frontiers in Language Sciences dealing with the topic of ''Insights to the study of Language from Network Science.'' Work from any discipline and on a variety of topics is encouraged!

Best regards,
Mike Vitevitch
