E-mail this message to a friend
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
http://www.elanguage.net/about.php, 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
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
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.iub.edu/~langrev.
Please note again that notices for the books on this list will not be
published in the print version of Language; instead, they will be published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.

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!
