John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce the addition of a new co-editor for the book series Issues in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics:

Jennifer Cabrelli Amaro (University of Illinois at Chicago) will join current editor Jason Rothman (University of Reading).

The book series Issues in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics aims to provide a single home for the highest quality monographs and edited volumes pertaining to Hispanic and Lusophone linguistics. In an effort to be as inclusive as possible, the series includes volumes that represent the many sub-fields and paradigms of linguistics that do high quality research targeting Iberian Romance languages. It seeks projects pertaining to all dialects in the world where these languages (co-)exist (e.g. Europe, South and North America, Africa) as well as projects on the acquisition of these languages anywhere Spanish and Portuguese are acquired in childhood or adulthood.

Because manuscripts from all relevant linguistic approaches are to be considered, the common thread across the books within this series will be the languages themselves. Although the majority of the books will focus on Spanish and Portuguese, for obvious reasons, book proposals that engage other Iberian-Romance languages in Europe (e.g., Galician, Catalan, Aragonese, etc.) and/or examine Spanish and Portuguese in their co-existence with other non-Romance languages in Europe (e.g. Basque), indigenous languages in Latin America, English in North America, and other national and regional languages across the Hispanic and Lusophone world are encouraged. Projects that engage several of these languages together are especially welcome.

Also to be considered will be proposals that focus on formal syntax, semantics, morphology, phonetics/phonology, pragmatics from any established research paradigm, as well as psycholinguistics, language acquisition, historical linguistics, applied linguistics and sociolinguistics. The editorial board is comprised of experts in all of the aforementioned fields.
