Message 2: Squibs in Glot International

Date: Tue, 31 Jul 2001 10:15:41 -0400
From: Glot International Squibs <squibspo-box.mcgill.ca>
Subject: Squibs in Glot International


Glot International invites submissions of squibs on any subject in 
any field of theoretical and/or applied linguistics. Since Glot 
International appears 10 times a year and our production time is 
relatively short, we have a short turn around time from acceptance to 
publication. The review procedure we have set up is also geared at 
losing as little time as possible. Contributors can help minimize 
delays by keeping to the formatting and length guidelines as closely 
as possible.

Important!! Squibs in Glot International have a length of one 
published page, which is approximately 1500 words.

Squibs in Glot International:

For Glot International, the most important characteristic is that 
squibs be inspiring. They should present new ideas, yet to be fleshed 
out in the details, but clearly and one at a time. They find 
connections between facts that nobody ever thought were related. They 
spell out the beginning of a new analysis, not necessarily daring. 
They give you new facts from old languages and old facts in a new 
guise. They come up with beautiful observations that somehow seem 
theoretically relevant as well. They tell you about wonderful 
problems and possibly only hint at a solution.

Submissions and queries for squibs in Glot International should be 
sent to the address below. Electronic submissions in Acrobat (.pdf) 
format are prefered, other Mac compatible formats (and of course, 
hard copies) are also acceptable.
