The print journal "Language" has now phased out the publication of book
notices in its pages. All book notices are now being published online in
the new electronic journal 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.

The lists of books currently available for 500-word book notices are posted at:


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:


Please note again that notices for the books on this list will not be
published in the print version of "Language"; instead, they will be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