Full Title: Stellenbosch Papers in Linguistics Plus

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 15-Apr-2016

The Southern African Microlinguistics Workshop (SAMWOP) series held its fourth yearly event from 27-29 November 2015 at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa. As with previous such events, a special issue of Stellenbosch Papers in Linguistics Plus (SPIL-Plus) has been reserved for articles based on papers presented at the workshop, but also for any other articles on Southern African microlinguistics, the term 'microlinguistics' being broadly defined as research that focuses predominantly on the structural aspects of language, rather that on its sociological or educational role. The focus of most previous issues has been on Sub-Saharan languages but articles of a more general, theoretical nature are also welcome.

Below is the basic aimed-for framework in terms of deadlines:

1st-submission: 15/04/16
Back from reviewers: 15/06/16
2nd-submission (if necessary): 15/07/16
Back from reviewers: 15/08/16
Final submission: 15/09/16

The goal is, therefore, to have the special issue published before the end of 2016.
