Book notice list [February 2006]

*** Important notice * * *

Within the next year, the print journal Language will be phasing out the
publication of book notices in its pages. Instead, all new book notices,
starting with this list, will be published online in the new electronic
journal that the LSA is developing, known as eLanguage (see the
announcement at www.lsadc.org/info/pubs-elang-rfp.cfm, and the Editor's
Department in the March 2006 issue of Language (82.1)). Book reviews and
review articles will continue to be published in the pages of Language as
they always have been.

* * * * * * * * *

Below is a link to the list of books currently available for 500-word book
notices. The opportunity to write book notices is offered to all readers
of Language whether or not they are LSA members, though the editor reserves
the right to decline to send books to volunteers whose previous book
notices have presented substantive or stylistic problems that increase the
time required for editing. Students are encouraged to write book notices,
though a faculty supervisor must agree to approve the book notice before it
is submitted to the editor. Book notices are due within three months
after the reviewer receives the book; this insures that works are reviewed
in a timely fashion.

The number of singly authored reviews and book notices by any one reviewer
may not exceed 10 per year. Also, a single reviewer may appear as the
(co-)author on as many as 15 submissions in one year. This means that in
addition to 10 singly-authored reviews/notices, a reviewer may additionally
have 5 co-authored reviews/notices in one year. (Note, however, that these
limits are subject to change, and reviewers would be advised to check with
the review editor if they approach these limits.)

Additional information on writing reviews and book notices for Language can
be found at the Language Reviews website, whose address for the time being
is http://www.cas.sc.edu/ling/Language_Book_Reviews.html#policy5. Note,
however, that the address of this website will change soon. The new
address will be announced on the Linguist List, on the LSA website, and at
the Language Reviews website's existing address.

Please note again that notices for the books on this list will not be
published in the print version of Language; instead, they will be published
online in eLanguage.

Please feel free to circulate this list to colleagues.

Requests for books should be made through the on-line request form also
found on the Language Reviews website. Alternatively, requests may be made to:

Language Reviews

If you request a book for a book notice, please include the address to
which we should mail it.

journal Language, which will shortly cease publication of book notices) are
