 Journal of English Linguistics

 One of the few linguistics journals dedicated to presenting primarily
empirical work, the Journal of English Linguistics is now being published
by Sage Periodicals Press, a leading international publisher of scholarly
books and journals in the social sciences.

 The Editors, William A. Kretzschmar, Jr., and Charles F. Meyer,
continue to invite submissions on the modern and historical periods of the
English language. The Journal of English Linguistics normally prints
synchronic and diachronic studies on subjects from Old and Middle English,
to modern English grammar, corpus linguistics, and dialectology. Other
topics, for example, from language contact, to pidgins/creoles, or
stylistics are acceptable if the article keeps its focus on the English
language. Articles normally range from 10 to 25 pages in typescript (up
to about 50Kb on disk). Submission to the Journal of English Linguistics
implies that your article hasn't been simultaneously submitted to other
journals or previously published elsewhere.

 As a new feature beginning with the first Sage issue, Volume 24,
the Journal of English Linguistics will publish Special Issues (monographs
or topical collections of articles appropriate to the journal that are up
to approximately 100 printed pages). These Special Issues should treat
methodology or present results of model studies. All methodological
issues should be fully illustrated with particular examples from empirical
research, and should present documentation complete enough for readers
themselves to use the methods described. Model studies should fully
describe data acquisition and analysis, as well as present detailed
results and conclusions. Proposals for Special Issues of the Journal of
English Linguistics should be sent to the Editor.

 The journal will continue to review titles in general and historical
linguistics, language variation, sociolinguistics, and dialectology for an
international audience. Unsolicited reviews cannot be considered. Books
for review and correspondence regarding reviews should be sent to the

 All submissions should be prepared according to The Chicago Manual of
Style, 14th ed. Submissions are juried. Send all MSS to the Editor:
provide a textfile produced by any common IBM-compatible word processor,
on diskette or via electronic mail (Mac users should submit a pure ASCII
file), plus two copies of a formatted printout. All other editorial
correspondence should be addressed to the Editor.
