Message 1: Books available for review

Date: Thu, 13 Jan 94 13:26 CST
From: <bcjtamuts.tamu.edu>
Subject: Books available for review

Over the course of the past semester, publishers have sent us several
books for review without posting their availability to the list. They are
the following:

Baker, Francis, and Tognini-Bonelli, eds. Text and Technology: In
Honour of John Sinclair. Benjamins 1993

Komatsu and Harris, eds. Saussure's third course of lectures on general
linguistics. Pergamon 1993

Gawronska, An MT oriented model of aspect and article semantics. Lund UP

Renkema, Discourse Studies. Benjamins.

Givon, English Grammar I and II. Benjamins.

If you would like to write a 500-word discussion-starting summary of
the issues covered in one of these books, contact Barbara Johnstone:
bcjtamuts.tamu.edu. INCLUDE YOUR SNAIL_MAIL ADDRESS. Reviews are
due two months after your receipt of the book. Assignments are first-
come, first-served.

We would like to remind publishers' representatives reading this posting that
publishers are asked to post the titles and brief descriptions of books
that are available for review at the same time as they send us review
copies. This is the only way of guaranteeing that your books are reviewed
promptly by people who have some idea in advance of what they are about.
We do not have the staff to list each book as it comes in, though we will
try to list books you have not listed once or twice a year.
