The Journal of French Language Studies (Cambridge University Press) invites
colleagues to submit proposals for a special thematic issue of the Journal,
to be published in February 2012.
Submissions will be expected to represent state-of-the-art research in a
particular area and to this end should demonstrate that contributions are
representative of current activity in the domain proposed.
Proposals must include the following information:
- Name(s) and affiliation(s) of the proposing/co-ordinating editor(s)
- Theme of the special issue
- A description, in no more than 200 words, of the research context of the
topics to be covered, and the rationale for a thematic issue in this
subject area that clearly delineates the theoretical framework and research
significance of the topic.
- Names of contributing authors, their affiliations, the titles of their
articles and brief abstracts (around 100 words)
Please note that we are unlikely to consider proposals too closely related
to areas covered in recent or forthcoming thematic issues, as follows:

- The dynamics of levelling and diversity in French
- Le français à la lumière des corpus
- Knowledge and use of the lexicon in French as a second language
- Relations de cohérence et fonctionnement des anaphores

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
