The study also highlights the constructs of current linguistic theory, arguing for distinctive features and the notion 'onset' and against some of the claims of Optimality Theory and Usage-based accounts.
The importance of Henk Zeevat's new monograph cannot be overstated. [...] I recommend it to anyone who combines interests in language, logic, and computation [...]. David Beaver, University of Texas at Austin

Language Planning and Language Rights
This issue looks into language rights and language planning in their dichotomy between the national and transnational context. As culturally and socially determined phenomena both are undergoing changes via Europeanisation and globalisation processes. This has implications for language planning across all domains. We welcome theoretical and empirical studies that consider (but are in their focus not limited to):
- The concept of linguistic rights for language planning; - Language planning debates and policies as increasingly influenced by international language rights or linguistic human rights frameworks; - Implications of EU policy on minority language rights for language planning; - Impacts of official policies supporting the linguistic rights of communities for future planning
Please send abstracts to the editor for this issue, Dr Gabrielle Hogan-Brun at G.Hogan-Brun@bristol.ac.uk.
The deadline for receipt of abstracts is 30 January 2014. The deadline for receipt of the final papers is 15 June 2014.
