 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.
