Message 1: AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW

Date: Fri, 8 Aug 2003 18:31:44 -0400 (EDT)
From: linguistlist reviews <reviewslinguistlist.org>
Subject: AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW

The following books are available for review on the LINGUIST List.
If you are interested in reviewing any of these books, please contact
Simin Karimi at:
 siminlinguistlist.org

We have included links to the publishers' announcements of these books
on LINGUIST, so that you can easily get more information about them.

When asking to review a book, include the following in your message.
Please do this even if you have given us this information before!

1. The author(s) and title of the book you wish to review. If you are
 interested in more than one book, list them in order of preference.
2. Your full name and highest academic degree received.
3. Your current affiliation if any.
4. A short description of your research interests, especially as they
 pertain to the book(s) you are interested in.
5. A postal address to which the book should be sent.

If you are selected to review a book, we will mail you a copy along
with further instructions. Reviews must be completed within SIX WEEKS
of receipt of the book or the book must be returned.

Because of our summer schedule, we did not send out a call for reviewers
in July. We will resume our normal schedule of sending out such calls at
the beginning of each month in September. We are also hard at work
redesigning the reviews index page on LINGUIST which will, we hope,
significantly streamline our process of soliciting reviewers, and posting
your reviews. We hope to introduce the new design this fall.
