 ----------- 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 family.
Contributions that establish robust empirical generalizations within a
formal theory of grammar that permit precise discussion are welcome.
The empirical range of the work may either involve cross-linguistic
comparison within the Germanic 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. Areas of linguistics to be covered
include Morphology, Phonology, Pragmatics, Semantics, and Syntax. The
journal will be published three times per year in the English
language. Squibs, replies, book and dissertation reviews as well as
researcher profiles will be included.
