The print journal Language has now phased out the publication of booknotices in its pages. All book notices are now being published online inthe new electronic journal known as eLanguage (see the announcement at, and the Editor's Department in theMarch 2006 issue of Language (82.1)). Book reviews and review articleswill continue to be published in the pages of Language as they always havebeen.

The lists of books currently available for 500-word book notices are postedat:

The opportunity to write book notices is offered to all readers of Languagewhether or not they are LSA members, though the editor reserves the rightto decline to send books to volunteers whose previous book notices havepresented substantive or stylistic problems that increase the time requiredfor editing. Students are encouraged to write book notices, though afaculty supervisor must agree to approve the book notice before it issubmitted to the editor. Book notices are due within three months afterthe reviewer receives the book; this ensures that works are reviewed in atimely fashion.

The number of singly authored reviews and book notices by any one reviewermay not exceed 10 per year. Also, a single reviewer may appear as the(co-)author on as many as 15 submissions in one year. This means that inaddition to 10 singly-authored reviews/notices, a reviewer may additionallyhave 5 co-authored reviews/notices in one year. (Note, however, that theselimits are subject to change, and reviewers would be advised to check withthe review editor if they approach these limits.)

Additional information on writing reviews and book notices for Language canbe found at the Language Reviews website

Please note again that notices for the books on this list will not bepublished in the print version of Language; instead, they will be publishedonline in eLanguage.
