Message 1: Pedagogical Stylistics

Date: Tue, 31 Aug 2004 09:38:23 -0400
From: Greg Watson <>
Subject: Pedagogical Stylistics


The field of stylistics has greatly developed since the late
1950s. One cannot state that it is simply an interface between
literature and linguistics any longer, especially after the
development of cognitive studies. We are interested in publishing an
edited volume on the state of the art of stylistics, specifically in
classroom contexts. How has pedagogical stylistics developed since the
late 1950s? Where do we stand now? How has research in this area
progressed? What are the prospects for the future in terms of research
and application? These are some of the issues which we believe should
belong to this volume.

In order not to influence the scope of submissions, we refrain from
setting predefined sections. On the contrary, we welcome a wide
variety of submissions from theoretical discussions, relations between
stylistics and new technology, research on students' response to
texts, and all sorts of classroom applications.

Submissions should be preceded by 300-500 word abstracts. All work
must be original, non-published material and should follow the style
of the Instructions to Authors published in Language and Literature.
Language of submission should be English, and we especially welcome
work from non-English speaking countries. All papers will be reviewed.

The proposed timetable for this project is:

 Submission of abstract: December 2004
 Submission of papers (upon invitation): July 2005
 Submission of manuscript to reputable publisher: December 2005

If you wish to contribute to this volume, please contact either Greg
Watson or Sonia Zyngier, preferably by email. (In case you prefer to
use regular mail, please address your envelope to Dr. Greg Watson):

Phonology: Call for papers

Thematic issue: 'Between stress and tone'

Phonology is dedicating a thematic issue, entitled 'Between stress and
tone', to word-level prosodic systems, with particular reference to
issues of typology in prosodic systems in the languages of the
world. This issue will be edited by Bert Remijsen (University of
Leiden & University of Edinburgh) and Vincent van Heuven (University
of Leiden).

Submissions are invited on any topic relevant to the theme of the
issue, in particular those dealing with new data and analysis of
typologically unusual systems, new perspectives on word-prosodic
typology, or hypotheses that have a bearing on typology. Papers can
have a synchronic or diachronic perspective, and both phonological and
phonetic work is invited. Submissions dealing with word-prosodic
contrasts in relation to other aspects of the prosodic system, such as
intonation, are particularly encouraged.

This thematic issue is being edited in conjunction with a conference
with the same title to be held in Leiden in June 2005 (see However, submissions to the
thematic issue of Phonology are not restricted to participants in the
conference, and no preference will be given to submissions from
participants over those from non-participants.

'Between stress and tone' will appear as one of the issues of
Phonology 23 (2006). The deadline for submissions is 1 July
2005. General information on the submission of manuscripts can be
found in previous issues of the journal, or on the Phonology website
( For this issue, two hard
copies of each submission should be sent either to one of the
editorial addresses (see the inside back cover of any issue of the
journal) or to Bert Remijsen (Department of Theoretical and Applied
Linguistics, Adam Ferguson Building, 40 George Square, Edinburgh EH8
9LL, Scotland). In addition, a copy of the paper in PDF format should
be sent both to A.C.L.REMIJSENLET.LEIDENUNIV.NL and to
EWENLET.LEIDENUNIV.NL, together with an abstract of the paper
(maximum 150 words), if possible as plain text. Preference will be
given to papers which will occupy no more than 25 printed pages in the

Submissions will be read by at least two reviewers and by the editors
of the thematic issue.
