In memory of Dr Vivien Law (1954-2002), and thanks to her generosity, a
prize has been established for the best essay submitted on any topic within
the history of linguistics. The competition is open to all currently
registered students, and to those who have received their PhD or equivalent
qualification within the last five years. The prize consists of £100 and
publication of the winning essay in the journal Language and History. The
prize-winner is also entitled to one year's free membership of the Society
and will receive a free copy of Vivien Law's The History of Linguistics in
Europe from Cambridge University Press.

The closing date for submissions is 30 September. Entries may be written in
English, French, or German, and should not exceed 8000 words. More
information about the competition and how to apply may be found at:
