Qs: BibTeX for Linguistics Unified Style Sheet?

Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams <catherinlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

The editors of a number of journals in Linguistics, including Language,
have developed a Unified Style Sheet for publications in our field (see
http://www.lsadc.org/info/style-sheet.cfm). Use of this style is
encouraged, and if it is widely adopted, that could considerably facilitate
the preparation of manuscripts. In support of that, it would be useful to
have software support for it in popular document preparation systems. The
one I care about is LaTeX(/BibTeX), and before I try to re-invent the wheel
(also remembering how much fun it is to make sense of the weird syntax of
.bst files), I wonder if someone has already produced a BibTeX style file
implementing this style.

If something useful turns up, I will post a summary to LinguistList, and if
possible make the .bst file available through my own web site. If I learn
that there exists similar support for other systems, I'll try to see if all
such files could be made available through the LL Computer tools page
and/or the LSA Web page.
