Message 1: Language: December 2006 Book Notice List
Date: 22-Dec-2006
From: Gregory Stump <gstumpuky.edu>
Subject: Language: December 2006 Book Notice List


LANGUAGE, Journal of the Linguistic Society of America

Book notice list [December 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
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 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
(http://www.as.uky.edu/linguistics/language_reviews/).

Please note again that notices for the books on this list will not be
published in the print version of Language; instead, they will be published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 may be made to:

If requesting by e-mail, please include the address to which we should send
the book for which you wish to write a notice.
