LANGUAGE AND SPEECH has new Editors: 
Tim Bunnell 				Irene Vogel
A. I. duPont Hospital for Children 	University of Delaware

As some of you may know, the editorship of the Journal underwent a
change last fall. After seven years of outstanding leadership, Ellen
Gurman Bard and D. Robert Ladd elected to hand over the reins of the
joint editorship. In the words of more than one colleague, 'they will
be a hard act to follow.' We will do our best to maintain the high
standards they have set for publication quality.

With the change in editorship, the Journal is also adopting a new
editorial approach utilizing a group of associate editors covering a
wide range of expertise to serve as action editors. This change, along
with new electronic submission procedures should streamline our review
process and should help to reduced lag times between submission and
publication dates. Please see our web site at the address shown below
for more details.

LANGUAGE AND SPEECH will continue to reflect the current trend toward
a multidisciplinary approach to research in Linguistics, Cognitive
Science, and Spoken Language Processing. We welcome your manuscripts
of full-length articles, and suggestions for possible special topic
