 Book notice list

Below is the list of books currently available for 500 word book
notices. The opportunity to write book notices is offered to all
readers of Language whether or not they are LSA members, though
the editor reserves the right to decline to send books to
volunteers whose previous book notices have presented substantive
or stylistic problems that increase the time required for
editing. Students are encouraged to write book notices, though a
faculty supervisor must agree to approve the book notice before
it is submitted to the editor. Book notices are due within
three months after the reviewer receives the book; this insures
that works are reviewed in a timely fashion.

Please feel free to circulate this list to colleagues.
