Message 1: BibTeX Style for the Journal Language

Subject: BibTeX Style for the Journal Language
E-mail this message to a friend

Answering a request from a colleague, I created a BibTeX style file (.bst)
for formatting bibliographies for the journal Language. While many users of
BibTeX are familiar with Dan Jurafsky's lsalike.bst, it is not compatible
with natbib (the most flexible package for handling citations), and
does not format reference lists according to the current Language style sheet.

The new style file, language.bst, is compatible with natbib and reproduces
the current Language style sheet. It is available at the following web


Note that the style formats reference lists the way they should be
submitted to Language, which is different from what they look like in the
published journal.

Detailed comments are found inside the file. I hope people find it useful.
If you notice any bugs or errors, please write to me and I'll do my best to
fix them.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
