From: Joshua Pasternak <>
Subject: Encyclopedia of Linguistics

Calling contributing authors to write for the Encyclopedia of
Linguistics, to be published by Routledge in September 2004. The
Encyclopedia will appear in two volumes containing over 600 entries
arranged alphabetically, each signed by its author. We are committed
to making even the more complex linguistic issues understandable for
the non-specialized reader. The approach will be both historical and
international, with emphasis on the varied perspectives, figures, and
methodologies that make up the field.

This Encyclopedia is intended for use by teachers and students of
linguistics and related fields, as well as interested general
readers. It is our goal to provide up-to-date and comprehensive
coverage of the field in a manner as accessible as possible.

Available articles range from 1000 to 3000 in word length. Our
upcoming production schedule requires that we offer the relatively
short deadline of Monday, December 29. We are unable to accept
articles past that deadline. We offer an honorarium of $50 for every
1000 assigned words or the option to receive a complimentary copy of
the Encyclopedia. Should you agree to contribute, we will mail you the
contributor agreement for your signature. You can find a complete
unassigned list below. For more information regarding style guidelines
and sample articles, please visit the project website at Please email responses to
this posting to with your CV
attached. We will assign articles on a first come, first serve
basis. If you have any questions please let us know. If you are unable
to participate, we would welcome your suggestions of other outstanding
academics or scholars as potential contributors.

We look forward to hearing from you and to adding your name to our
list of distinguished contributors.

Meeting Description:

University of Valencia (Spain)
March 10-12, 2004 

Dear colleagues,

The Organising Board of the 19th Conference of the Association of
Young Linguists (AJL) to be held in Valencia (Spain) from the 10th to
the 12th of March 2004 is sorry to inform about a sudden change in our
conference deadline due to unexpected administrative reasons. Please
take notice of the new deadline: JANUARY 15TH 2004. We request
participants to submit their abstracts or their proposals in due

We would also like to inform that our conference dates are close to
our regional festivity of Fallas, so that possibilities for
accommodation availability will soon be hugely reduced, if not
exhausted. This is why we recommend our participants to book as soon
as possible. We will be including shortly in our web page all
information about accommodation availability and cost.

We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause you.

Yours sincerely,

The Board of the 19th AJL Conference.
