Date: Thu, 21 Dec 1995 08:53:01 Call for Papers for New Journal: JCGL
From: Gert Webelhuth <webelhutgibbs.oit.unc.edu>
Subject: Call for Papers for New Journal: JCGL

	 Call for Immediate Submission of Papers to the Brand-New

	 JOURNAL OF COMPARATIVE GERMANIC LINGUISTICS

	Edited by Kenneth J. Safir, Rutgers University
	 and Gert Webelhuth, University of North Carolina at
 Chapel Hill

	The Journal of Comparative Germanic Linguistics provides
	a platform for discussion of theoretical linguistic
	research into the modern and older languages and dialects
	of the Germanic language family. Contributions that establish
	robust empirical generalizations within any formal theory
	of grammar that permits precise discussion are welcome.
	The empirical range of the work may either involve
	cross-linguistic comparison within the Germanic language
	family or elucidate issues in Germanic linguistics
	through the exemplary analysis of one Germanic language.
	Papers dealing mostly with modern English are required
	to have strong cross-Germanic implications.

	The areas of linguistics to be covered include
	Syntax, Morphology, Phonology, Semantics, and Pragmatics.

	The journal will be published three times per year in
	English. Squibs, replies, book and dissertation
	reviews as well as researcher profiles will be
	included.

	Procedure for Submission of Manuscripts:

	1. Submission Address:

		Journal of Comparative Germanic Linguistics
		Kluwer Academic Publishers
		101 Philip Drive
		Norwell, MA 02061

	2. Authors should send 4 copies of their double-spaced
	 manuscripts. Squibs are most welcome but should not
	 exceed a page length of 12 pages (not including
	 references). To arrange a book review or submit a
	 dissertation abstract, please contact one of the
	 editors directly.

	3. A style sheet for the new journal is currently being
	 printed but is not available for distribution yet. Until
	 further notice, manuscripts should conform to the style
	 sheet of "Natural Language and Linguistic Theory."


Please feel free to contact the co-editors in case you have questions
about the journal that were not addressed above.
