Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Call Information:
Editor's Note: This is the second call for papers

Guidelines for Submission

Submission is open to all; you do not need to be a member of NYS TESOL to submit a manuscript. The editorial board seeks submissions in the following four categories:

1. Feature articles (20-25 pages inclusive of references, tables, and figures): These articles focus on theory, research, pedagogy, and/or educational policy. Feature articles should show evidence of rigorous scholarship, make an original contribution to the field of education, contain ample references, and provide readers with insights relevant to TESOL learning and teaching. Feature articles should be driven by pedagogical problems and research questions that address those problems. We welcome all methodological research paradigms; in all cases we ask authors to keep the literature review and methods sections succinct and emphasize the findings and the applications of those findings to pedagogical issues. Articles that contain statistical analysis must be accessible to a general audience of educators.

2. Brief reports (10-15 pages inclusive of references, tables, and figures): These articles are briefer and less formal than feature articles. Based on current or emergent trends in the field of TESOL, exchanges present (a) well-argued viewpoints regarding theory, research, pedagogy, and/or educational policy, (b) effective instructional techniques and classroom practices, (c) pilot studies, or (d) other discussions that are of interest to our readership.

3. Reviews of books and other published materials (2-4 pages): Please contact the Book Review Editor to get your title approved before beginning writing to ensure another writer is not already reviewing the same text and that the publication date is recent enough. When choosing books, software, or audio materials to review, consider what contribution they make to the field.

4. Proposals for themed issues. Those interested may submit a proposal to serve as guest editor of a themed issue. The proposal should include: (a) a cover letter explaining the rationale for the special topic issue; (b) a tentative list of topics to include in the themed issue; and (c) an outline for soliciting submissions.
