papers, announcements for conferences, new publications, notes on
research in progress, abstracts of completed dissertations, book
reviews, news of Arabic/ Near Eastern Studies Programs, employment and
funding opportunities, profiles of senior figures in the field, and
obituaries are some of the information subscribers will
receive. Subscription to the list is free!

Message 2: LANGUAGE Book notices

Date: Sat, 28 Jun 1997 10:29:38 -0500
From: Langrev Langrev <>
Subject: LANGUAGE Book notices

 Journal of the Linguistic Society of America

 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.
