Gamification of education, using game mechanics for educational purposes, is a new exciting direction that promotes deeper engagement and reduces performance anxiety.

We invite chapter proposals for an edited collection "Games for students of linguistics”. The collection aims to bring together games that would help students of linguistics to develop and practice the fundamental concepts in Phonetics & Phonology, Syntax & Morphology, and Semantics & Pragmatics. Examples of the games and gamified activities might include coloring the anatomical structure of the vocal tract, IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) bingo, crosswords with the terminology from your discipline, card games, etc. The games should be designed and piloted with undergraduate students of linguistics at the university level prior to submission.

Proposals should not exceed 500 words and include the following:

Brief description of the game
The name of the course, in which the game was used
A few sentences about the skills that the game enhances

Submissions to this edited collection will be prioritized in editorial processing, reviewing, and publication. Upon acceptance of a chapter proposal, guidelines for preparing final chapters will be provided. The final chapter will consist of the actual game materials – graphics, cards, worksheets, etc., and the instructions on how to play. Chapters must be original work and not under review for publication elsewhere.
