First Call for Papers (contributing to the German-English anthology:
''Intensivierungskonzepte bei Adjektiven und Adverben im Sprachvergleich'' /
''Crosslinguistic comparison of Intensified Adjectives and Adverbs'')

Deadline: October 30th, 2011

Following the publication of the first dictionary of so-called ''German
Volkssuperlatives'' (''Woerterbuch deutschsprachiger Volkssuperlative'' –
in press: http://www.verlagdrkovac.de/978-3-8300-5610-2.htm) and its
supplementary volume presenting papers written by several contributors
authors are invited to contribute papers dealing with the linguistic
phenomenon of intensifying adjectives (and adverbs), i.e. such as compounds
(noun + adjective: e.g. ice-cold, crystal-clear, stone-dead, etc.)
particularly in Germanic languages. However, other less compound-friendly
languages such as Romance languages may probably make use of different
intensifiers like absolute Superlative or Elative (e.g. Spanish: La chica
es guapísima. El agua está clarísima.). Even other intensifiers such as
reduplication may be applied in languages not belonging to the
Indo-European family, e.g. in Japanese hara hara (= extremely exciting),
waku waku (= extremely excited), mainichi mainichi (= German: tagtäglich, =
daily/every single day) etc., so there are various methods to achieve
adjectival intensifying across languages.

First deadline for receipt of completed papers is October 30th, 2011;
papers must be in English or German and submitted electronically to Guido
J. Oebel at guidooebelyahoo.de

Author Guidelines: Supply one copy of the paper and keep an identical copy
for reference. Manuscripts will not be returned. Submissions must be sent
electronically to: guidooebelyahoo.de.

Submission of a paper is assumed to mean that it is original work which has
not been previously published and is not simultaneously in press or being
considered for publication elsewhere (in either electronic or hard copy).

Bibliography: Bibliographic references will be listed in alphabetical
order, in TNR 14, as in the following examples:

Books: Author (if possible, including first name), year, title, place of
publication, publishing house, e.g.:

Adelung (author’s surname), (Komma) Johann (first name) Christoph (possibly
middle name) (1781) (year of publication): (colon) Deutsche Sprachlehre für
Schulen – zum Gebrauche der Schulen in den Königlich-Preußischen Landen
(title in italic). (period) Berlin (place of publication): (colon) Voß &
Sohn (publishing house). (period)

Articles: Author, year, ''title'', journal, number, page(s) e.g.:

Schröder, Edward (1899): ''Steigerung und Häufung der Alliteration in der
westgermanischen Dichtung'', in: Zeitschrift für deutsches Altertum und
deutsche Literatur, Bd. 43, 361-385.

Contributions to collective volumes: Author, year, ''title'', editor's name
(ed.), Title of the collective volume, publishing house, page(s), e.g.:

Traugott, Elizabeth (1985): ''Conventional and Dead Metaphors Revisited'',
in Paprotté, Wolf & René Dirven (eds.): The Ubiquity of Metaphor – Metaphor
in Language and Thought. Amsterdam, Philadelphia: Benjamins, 17-56.

Electronic sources will be mentioned alphabetically. The access day will be
mentioned, e.g.:

Falkenstein, Janna (2005): De volkssuperlatief in het nederlands.
Hauptseminararbeit in Sprachwissenschaft an der FUB: Wortbildung des
Niederländischen: synchron – diachron. München: Grin-Verlag, 21, online
consulted on February 3rd, 2011.

Tables and Figures should be inserted where they should appear in the pages
and numbered consecutively. Keep detail on tables and figures to the
minimum needed to substantiate the points made in the text. Ensure all
figures are of sufficient quality to reproduce adequately.

Lists or numbered examples should use Arabic numbers on the margin,
followed by a stop but without parentheses, with the text indented
throughout. Long quotations whether citations or data should be separated
from the text and indented, and in TNR 12.

Spelling and Punctuation: Use double quote marks for ''quotations''. Give
page number of reference for direct quotations.

When writing in English, both British and American spelling and punctuation
conventions may be used, but they should be applied consistently throughout
the paper.

Notes: Avoid the use of notes where possible - authors will be asked to
reduce excessive numbers of notes. Notes will appear as footnotes only (in
TNR 12) and be numbered consecutively.

References: References should use the author/date system, e.g.: (Hymes
1974). When the authors name appears in the text, use: ''Gumperz (1983)
argues that...''

Type Format. Page numbers appear after a colon (plus space) following the
date, such as: Labov (1972: 269-270). Do not use additional parentheses for
the date of a reference contained in text that is already enclosed in
parentheses. Use semicolons between a sequence of references by different
authors. For works with three or more authors, either use all authors names
at each citation: Fishman, Ferguson & das Gupta (1968); or use et al. after
first mention: Fishman et al. (1968).

All works cited must appear under the title References following any notes.
Check thoroughly that all works cited in text and notes appear in the list
of references, and that authors and dates match between citation and
references. The references appear in alphabetical order. Use authors names
as they appear on the published sources, with full first name unless author
uses only initials. Reverse first and last names only for the head name of
the reference.

Same-author references appear in date order. Same-date references by the
same author should be identified with letters: Labov 1972a, 1972b, 1972c,
etc. Multiple-authored works follow all sole-authored works by the first
author, in alphabetical order of second (and subsequent) authors.

Indent the second and subsequent lines of each reference. Capitalize main
words in book and journal titles. Use minimal capitalization in article
titles, but capitalize the first letter after a colon within the title. Do
not use quotation marks around article or chapter titles. Underline the
titles of books and journals. Give volume number for journal references,
and publisher plus place of publication for books. Spell out U.S. state
names in full. Use the ampersand-symbol '&' instead of the word 'and'. Give
full page numbers for articles in journals and books.
