Subject: New Linguistics Journal

"Languages and Linguistics" is a new world forum for the study of
natural languages, with a special focus on the languages in use in
Africa and the Middle East. The journal brings together research from
English, French and Arabic traditions, publishing significant work on
phonology, morphology, syntax, lexis and semantics, sociolinguistics,
pragmatics, discourse analysis, applied linguistics, language
acquisition, computational linguistics and variation and comparative
studies.

The existing linguistics journals do not discuss all facets of
Afro-Asiatic linguistics and hardly refer to the particular linguistic
situation in Africa and the Middle East, with its various dialects,
its large linguistic communities and the recent developments of the
languages in contact. L&L invites scholars to submit papers on any
area of linguistic science that is of relevance to the work of
Language departments.

The journal will also include book-reviews. This section aims to
publish book-reviews within a few months of books being published
thereby informing researchers and assisting the decision-makers on new
acquisitions for libraries or the adoption of books for courses.

Linguists are invited to contribute to this journal with an article or
book review. Your contribution can be in English, French or Arabic.

If you are willing to participate in the forthcoming issue(s) of the
journal, please send an abstract or the entire article for approval by
the Editorial Board. Please write to:

 CELEBRATION

You are invited to celebrate Noam Chomsky's 70th birthday (December
7,1998) by contributing to a collection of essays by everyone whose
work over the years has been stimulated or inspired by Chomsky's
ideas.

WE ASK THAT YOU PLEASE KEEP THIS A SECRET FROM NOAM. 

Noam is known to dislike ceremony, so this plan includes no parties,
no speeches, nothing but an elegantly printed list of all the
contributors. It will be on his desk, in a very quiet envelope, on the
morning of his birthday. We hope there will be so many contributions
that it will be clear to Noam that no one expects him to read them all
and respond to them. Please spread the word to all of your friends,
colleagues and students who may wish to participate.

To add your own contribution, simply go to the URL
http://mitpress.mit.edu/celebration and click on the contributor's
link and follow the instructions. For some guidelines as to how you
should frame your contributions, select the guidelines link.

We believe this way of expressing our respect and affection will be
the least intrusive. We specifically ask that you convey the need for
discretion. All you need pass along to others is the URL
http://mitpress.mit.edu/celebration, which will bring people to the
Webpage with full details for this project.

If you have any additional questions, comments, or suggestions for how
to improve on the plan, please contact Janet Fodor
(jfodoremail.gc.cuny.edu), Jay Keyser (keysermit.edu) or Amy Brand
(apiercemit.edu). All communications should use the subject header
CELEBRATION.

Everyone whose work has been influenced by Chomsky's, in any area of
scholarship, is welcome to contribute. Please pass on this message to
your colleagues and students, here and abroad. If everyone tells five
other people, we'll reach the whole world.
