 BRITISH ASSOCIATION FOR APPLIED LINGUISTICS

 BAAL BOOK PRIZE 1995

The British Association for Applied Linguistics (BAAL) offers an
annual award for 'an outstanding book in the field of Applied
Linguistics'. Nominations for the 1995 prize (for books published
in 1994) are now invited. Books in any field of Applied
Linguistics are eligible, provided they are published in English
and bear a 1994 copyright date. Eligibility is NOT restricted to
British authors or to books published in the UK.

The definition of Applied Linguistics, for the purposes of the
award, is a wide one. Many studies in sociolinguistics, discourse
analysis, education and will come within the scope of the BAAL
Book Prize, as will many language reference books. For example,
last year's winner was Ruth Lesser and Lesley Milroy 'Linguistics
and Aphasia', published by Longmans, 1993. A Special Award was
also made to Longmans 'Language Activator'. Also shortlisted last
year were Brian Street (ed) 'Cross-cultural Approaches to
Literacy' (Cambridge University Press, 1993), and C. Kramsch
'Context and Culture in Language Teaching' (Oxford University
Press, 1993).

Previous winners include Susan Berk-Seligson 'The Bilingual
Courtroom' (University of Chicago Press, 1990), Joshua Fishman
'Reversing Language Shift' (Multilingual Matters, 1991),
'Dictionary of British Sign Language' (Faber and Faber, 1992)

ENTRIES MUST BE MADE BY *PUBLISHERS* BY 28TH FEBRUARY 1995

If you published a book in 1994 which you think may be suitable,
let your publisher know about the award. Further details of how
