Call Deadline: 01-Jun-2016

The Journal of French Language Studies (Cambridge University Press) invites colleagues to submit proposals for a special thematic issue of the Journal, to be published in March 2018.

Submissions will be expected to represent state-of-the-art research in a particular area and to this end should demonstrate that contributions are representative of current activity in the domain proposed.

Proposals must include the following information:

- Name(s) and affiliation(s) of the proposing/co-ordinating editor(s)
- Theme of the special issue
- A description, in no more than 250 words, of the research context of the topics to be covered, and the rationale for a thematic issue in this subject area that clearly delineates the theoretical framework and research significance of the topic. Care should be taken to clearly describe the specific focus of the special issue and to demonstrate how each article contributes to the overall coherence of the theme.
- Names of contributing authors, their affiliations, the titles of their articles and brief abstracts (around 150 words). Where individual abstracts make contradictory claims, a brief explanation of how this contributes to an overall understanding of the theme should be outlined.
- A brief glossary of any specialist technical terms not in common usage.
- An overall list of references.

Please note that we are unlikely to consider proposals too closely related to areas covered in recent or forthcoming thematic issues, as follows:

- Knowledge and use of the lexicon in French as a second language
- Relations de cohérence et fonctionnement des anaphores
- French in a cross-cultural pragmatics context
- Regards croisés sur la prosodie du français
- First language acquisition of French grammar (from 0 to 4)
- L'hypothèse d'une diglossie en France
- Negation and Clitics in French and Romance: What kind of interaction?
- La diachronie du français : Etudes de marqueurs verbaux du TAM
- Les modalisateurs émergents en français contemporain
- La liaison en français: normes, usages, acquisition

Proposals should be sent by email, to arrive by 1st June 2016 to:

Professor Julia Herschensohn Co-ordinating Editor of JFLS
