Message 2: Glot International

Date: Fri, 14 Feb 2003 10:16:23 -0500
From: Glot International Squibs <glot.squibsmcgill.ca>
Subject: Glot International


The e-mail address for subsmissions and correspondence for the Squibs
Department of Glot International has changed. The new e-mail address
is:

glot.squibsmcgill.ca

As a reminder, a copy of the standing call for submissions is included
below. Further information can be found at our website.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:

Glot International invites submissions of squibs on any subject in any
field of theoretical and/or applied linguistics. Since Glot
International appears 10 times a year and our production time is
relatively short, we have a short turn around time from acceptance to
publication. The review procedure we have set up is also geared at
losing as little time as possible. Contributors can help minimize
delays by keeping to the formatting and length guidelines as closely
as possible.

Important!! Squibs in Glot International have a limit of approximately
1500 words.

Squibs in Glot International:

For Glot International, the most important characteristic is that
squibs be inspiring. They should present new ideas, yet to be fleshed
out in the details, but clearly and one at a time. They find
connections between facts that nobody ever thought were related. They
spell out the beginning of a new analysis, not necessarily daring.
They give you new facts from old languages and old facts in a new
guise. They come up with beautiful observations that somehow seem
theoretically relevant as well. They tell you about wonderful problems
and possibly only hint at a solution.

Submissions and queries for squibs in Glot International should be
sent to the address below. Electronic submissions in Acrobat (.pdf)
format are prefered, other Mac compatible formats (and of course, hard
copies) are also acceptable.
