Subject: SNIPPETS website/third call for papers



Issue 1 of the syntax-semantics newsletter SNIPPETS is now 
web-accessible. The articles can be viewed (using Adobe
Acrobat) at the following site: 

 http://www.lededizioni.it/ledonline/snippets.html


Once again, * APRIL 1, 2000 * is the deadline for submissions
to the second issue.


(NB. At the request of our web publishers, we have altered
our copyright policy slightly. The rights for published notes
now remain with the authors. At the same time, it is important 
to us that readers will be able to copy the newsletter and 
freely distribute its content. Consequently, authors are advised 
that, when they submit to Snippets, we understand them as 
allowing their submission to be reproduced if published.) 


- ----------------------------------------------------
>From the SNIPPETS Editorial Statement:


The aim of _Snippets_ is to publish specific remarks that 
motivate research or that make theoretical points germane to 
current work. The ideal contribution is the ideal footnote: a 
side remark that taken on its own is not worth lengthy development 
but that needs to be said. 

....

We will publish notes that contribute to the study of _syntax and 
semantics in generative grammar_. The notes are to be brief, 
self-contained and explicit. They may do any of the following 
things:

 a. point out an empirical phenomenon that goes against accepted 
 generalizations or that shows that some aspect of a theory is 
 problematic;
 b. point out unnoticed minimal pairs that fall outside the scope 
 of any existing theory;
 c. point out an empirical phenomenon that confirms the 
 predictions of a theory in an area where the theory has not 
 been tested;
 d. explicitly describe technical inconsistencies in a theory or 
 in a set of frequently adopted assumptions;
 e. explicitly describe unnoticed assumptions that underlie a 
 theory or assumptions that a theory needs to be supplemented 
 with in order to make desired predictions; 
 f. propose an idea for a pilot experiment in language acquisition 
 or language processing that directly bears on theoretical 
 issues;
 g. call attention to little-known or forgotten literature in 
 which issues of immediate relevance are discussed.

....

We will solicit submissions issue by issue. A new submission 
deadline will be announced for each issue, and the submissions that 
we receive we will consider only for that issue. The submissions
that we accept will be printed in the upcoming issue; none will be
scheduled for a later issue.

Submissions are to be a _maximum_ of 500 words (including examples), 
with an additional half page allowed for diagrams, tables and 
references. Given that we envision the submissions themselves as 
footnotes, _the submissions may not contain footnotes of their own_. 
The ideal submission is one paragraph; a submission of five lines is 
perfectly acceptable. _We will not consider abstracts_. 

We will accept electronic submissions at the address 

		snippetsunimi.it 

Paper submissions should be sent to

		Caterina Donati 
		Facolta' di Lingue
		Universita' di Urbino
		Piazza Rinascimento 7
		61029 Urbino
		ITALY
			
We strongly encourage electronic submissions. Electronic 
submissions may take the form of the text of an e-mail message, or 
an attached file. The attached file should be a simple text file, 
a Word file (Mac or Windows), or a Rich Text Format (RTF) file. 

All submissions must state the name and affiliation of the 
author(s), and a (postal or electronic) return address.
