Subject: Syntaxis - International Journal of Syntactic Research



CALL FOR PAPERS: SYNTAXIS 4

Syntaxis, An International Journal of Syntactic Research is a forum to
report results of current research in syntax. It publishes high
quality papers in all areas directly related to the syntax of human
languages. Both theoretical and descriptive studies, under formalist
or functionalist approaches are welcome. Inspired by the spirit of
the original Greek term "syntaxis", a major goal of the journal is to
bring together different perspectives and approaches to the study of
how languages put words together. Syntaxis will also include review
articles presenting the achievements and current state of both
established and emergent syntactic frameworks. You are invited to
submit articles for publication in volume 4 (2001). Please send in
your contributions (preferably in English) to the editor by May,
1. For more information visit our web page www2.uhu.es/syntaxis or
write to jmoracica.es
