 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.
