Full Title: Borealis. An International Journal of Hispanic Linguistics

Call Deadline: 31-Jul-2012

Borealis is now accepting articles and squibs for its two volumes in 2012.
Papers about any topic related to contemporary Spanish in any of its varieties
will be considered for publication (in English or in Spanish). See more details
about the submission process, style and other practicalities here:


The monographic topic section of the journal in 2012 is the Individual-Level /
Stage-level distinction in Spanish. Among many other issues that we consider
pertinent for this distinction, we are particularly interested in submissions related
to the following topics:

- The proper semantic definition of the distinction (temporally-bound? different
kinds of subjects of predication?...)
- Its syntactic implementation (codified in different structures? part of the
information of single heads?...)
- Its impact in morphology (eg., word formation processes that only apply to IL
or SL predicates)
- Its interaction with secondary predication, parenthetical structures and other
- Their different discourse-contribution
- Their pragmatic extensions (coercion, etc.)
- The lexical representation of items that alternate between IL and SL readings
- The connection between the 'ser' and 'estar' distinction and the IL / SL
- The extension of 'estar' to new contexts in some varieties of American
Spanish, such as Venezuelan Spanish or Costa Rican Spanish.
