Message 2: Language and Cognitive Processes East Asian Langs

Date: Wed, 14 Jan 1998 11:02:04 +0800
From: b063765 <b063765mailserv.cuhk.edu.hk>
Subject: Language and Cognitive Processes East Asian Langs


Special issue of Language and Cognitive Processes on the processing of
East Asian languages

Call for papers

Language and Cognitive Processes invites contributions to a special
issue on the Processing of East Asian Languages. In recent years,
there has been an upsurge of interest in the processing of major East
Asian languages such as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. These
languages, due to their salient differences in structure from European
languages, provide challenging opportunities to explore both
language-specific processes involved in comprehension and
communication, and the universality of theories developed from the
study of European languages. Papers in the special issue will report
new, unpublished empirical research on the processing of Chinese,
Japanese, or Korean.

The deadline for submissions is August 31, 1998. All manuscripts will
be submitted to the usual Language and Cognitive Processes peer review
process. Four copies of the manuscript should be sent to the
coordinating guest editor for this special issue:

H.-C. Chen
Department of Psychology
The Chinese University of Hong Kong
Shatin, N.T.
Hong Kong

This special issue will be guest-edited by Hsuan-Chih Chen and Xiaolin
Zhou (Birkbeck College, University of London). E-mail inquiries may
be directed to hcchenpsy.cuhk.edu.hk or x.zhoupsychology.bbk.ac.uk.
