Richard M. Hogg Prize 2012

The International Society for the Linguistics of English (ISLE) offers an
annual Richard M. Hogg Prize for a paper on any research-related
topic in English language or English linguistics. The closing date for
2012 submissions is 31 March 2012.

Richard M. Hogg
Richard Hogg was Smith Professor of English Language and Medieval
Literature at the University of Manchester from 1980 until his death in
2007. He was the General Editor of The Cambridge History of the
English Language (6 vols, 1992-2001), one of the founding editors of
the journal English Language and Linguistics, and well known for his
work on Old English, on phonology, and on English dialects. A list of
Professor Hogg's publications is available on the ISLE website
[http://www.isle-linguistics.org/prize/hogg_publications.asp]. His
Grammar of Old English, 2, Morphology, has been completed by
Robert Fulk and was published in January 2011.

The Prize will be awarded in open competition. The competition is
open to any individual who is both:
1. an early-career scholar, defined as a registered student not yet in
possession of a doctoral degree, or a post-doctoral scholar within two
years of the award of the doctorate at the time of submission; and
2. a member of the Society (membership can be applied for at the time
of submission).
It is expected that most candidates will be students on a doctoral
degree programme (PhD) or recent graduates of one, but
undergraduates and master's students are not precluded from
submitting a paper. Joint or multiple authorship is acceptable so long
as all authors meet the two conditions above. Authors should submit a
letter from their supervisor, or from a person of similar standing,
attesting to their status and that the submission is their own work.

The Paper
Candidates may write on any research-related topic in English
language or English linguistics. In awarding the prize the committee will
take into consideration the originality of the submitted paper and the
theoretical and/or empirical contribution it makes to the discipline.
The paper should not have been published before (except possibly in a
departmental working paper or the like), nor should it have been
submitted for publication elsewhere. It should not exceed - but need
not be as long as - 10,000 words in length including tables, figures,
notes, appendices, references, etc. It is recommended that authors
follow the style sheet available (as a pdf file) from the ISLE website,
which incorporates the Unified Style Sheet for linguistics journals; a
suitable EndNote style for users of the EndNote bibliography program
is also available for downloading.

Submission Dates and Address
The closing date for submissions is 31 March 2012. Submissions
should be written in English and should be accompanied by the letter
mentioned under 'Eligibility' above. Submissions should be sent as a
file attachment in an email to the Secretary of ISLE:
Stefan Dollinger, University of British Columbia at Vancouver,

The winner will receive a cash prize of £500 and their essay will be
published on the ISLE website. Additionally, the winner will be
encouraged to submit the prize-winning paper - revised where
appropriate in line with judges' or referees' comments - for competitive
review for publication in a journal closely associated with the aims of
the Society. If no submission is judged suitable, the prize will not be
awarded. The prize will be awarded by ISLE on the recommendation of
a prize committee formed from senior members of the Society, with a
member of the Executive Committee in the chair. The winner will be
announced on the Society's website by 1 September 2012. The prize
committee's decision is final.

Terttu Nevalainen
Chair of the prize committee.
