  1. linguistlist reviews, AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW


Date: Sat, 1 Feb 2003 00:22:06 -0500 (EST)
From: linguistlist reviews <>

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:

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.

The list is longer than usual, because we did not put out a call for
reviewers in January, and we're beginning to catch up with our backlog
of books received without announcements having been posted on LINGUIST.
