Message 1: Journal of Semantics
Date: 14-Mar-2006
From: Bart Geurts <bart.geurtsphil.ru.nl>
Subject: Journal of Semantics

Full Title: Journal of Semantics

Linguistic Field(s): Semantics

Call Deadline: 01-Aug-2006

Journal of Semantics

Special issue 'Processing meaning'

Guest editors: Robyn Carston and Julie Sedivy

Deadline for submissions: August 1, 2006

Although in the last two or three decades many researchers in semantics and
pragmatics have adopted a cognitivist stance on natural language
interpretation, for a long time the relations between semantics/pragmatics
and experimental psychology were lukewarm, at best. Recently, however, this
has begun to change, and the past few years have yielded a fair number of
truly interdisciplinary studies on such diverse topics as anaphora,
quantification, modality, implicature, polysemy, and so on.

Next year, the Journal of Semantics will publish a special issue that aims
to bring together theoretical and experimental approaches to semantics and
pragmatics. Papers submitted for this issue should address topics related
to semantic/pragmatic processing, and should be of interest to an
interdisciplinary readership. Submitted papers should be in pdf-format and
be emailed to the managing editor: bart.geurtsphil.ru.nl

Since it was founded in 1982, the Journal of Semantics has been one of the
main venues for publishing research in semantics and pragmatics. Currently,
our acceptance rate is 15%, and the average turnaround time (i.e. the time
between submission of a manuscript and the editorial decision) is 12 weeks.

The Journal of Semantics publishes articles concerned with the
interpretation of natural language, broadly construed: we welcome
contributions from all fields engaged in the study of interpretation,
including linguistics, philosophy, and psychology.

The editors of the Journal of Semantics are:

David Beaver
Regine Eckardt
Bart Geurts (managing editor)
Ira Noveck
Paul Portner
Philippe Schlenker
Yael Sharvit
Anna Szabolcsi
