Subject: Call for papers: Southwest Journal of Linguistics


The Linguistic Association Of The Southwest (LASSO) announces a
change in the editorship of its journal, the _Southwest Journal
of Linguistics_. Effective with Volume 16 (1997), the journal
will be housed at Texas A&M University-Commerce, where the new
editor, Jon Jonz, is Professor of English and Linguistics.

The _Southwest Journal of Linguistics_ is also renewing its call
for manuscripts. Each 220-page volume of the _Southwest Journal
of Linguistics_ is published in two numbers, one in June and one
in December. The journal publishes papers across a broad range
of topics in linguistics, though essays and research papers
dealing with the languages of the southwestern United States and
northern Mexico are especially encouraged.

The journal also publishes scholarly reviews of the literature,
book reviews, and occasional commentary on topics of concern to
the journal's readership.
