LINGUIST List RSS: Topic Descriptions



Below is a list of the various LINGUIST List issue topics with a short description of each. To subscribe, simply click the corresponding RSS/XML button and follow the instructions from there.

For more information on what RSS is or how it works, please see our RSS FAQ .

RSS/XML Most Recent Issues:
The fifty most recent issues of LINGUIST List on all subjects.
RSS/XML Issues Addressed to All Subscribers:
With the exception of obituaries, the All topic is reserved for messages from LINGUIST to its subscribers.
RSS/XML Book Announcements:
Publishers' announcements of new books of interest to linguists.
RSS/XML Calls for Papers:
Announcements from organizers of conferences, workshops, or journals asking for submissions of papers or abstracts. These include the relevant information about the conference or workshop, submission guidelines, deadline for submisions, and, if possible, an address or URL for more information.
RSS/XML Conference Announcements:
A conference posting may include all the information about a conference, including location, schedule, papers being presented, keynote speakers, URL of the conference, and even a registration form which could be printed out by a LINGUIST subscriber.
RSS/XML Discussions on Various Topics:
Readers may submit a question, hypothesis, or issue for debate and discussion by fellow linguists. These must be linguistically relevant and professional in tone, as well as free from political content, personal attacks, or heated rhetoric. Discussions may be ended at the discretion of the moderators; a "last call" notice is always given.
RSS/XML Dissertation Abstracts:
We post dissertation abstracts where the abstract is confined to no more than 4000 characters. This is the equivalent of about 500 words.
RSS/XML For Your Information:
FYIs inform the list of new information or resources. Some examples are: a notice of available research grants, a new university linguistics program, a new web site, new resources available (i.e., corpora, references), or new experiments. Calls for Papers for books and working papers series are also posted as FYIs.
RSS/XML Internship Announcements:
Internship postings are from institutions and organizations who are seeking a linguist as an intern.
RSS/XML Job Announcements:
Jobs postings are from institutions and organizations who are seeking a linguist for a specific job. Due to the large amount of mail which we receive, LINGUIST does not deal with job-seeking postings.
RSS/XML Topics in the Media:
These are announcements of linguistics in the news. Examples: an upcoming guest appearance of a linguist on a TV or radio program; an article in a magazine or newspaper, or a film that deals with some linguistic issue.
RSS/XML Queries:
This topic is reserved for questions submitted by professional linguists (as opposed to the general public), usually designed to gather information which would aid the sender in his/her research.
RSS/XML Book Reviews:
These are reviews written by LINGUIST readers, about books that have been announced on LINGUIST. Reviewers are chosen by the Review Editors.
RSS/XML Software Announcements:
These are announcements of new software of interest to linguists.
RSS/XML Summaries of Query Responses:
After an appropriate amount of time, the sender of a Query submits a summary of the responses received from the list. This is an overview of responses rather than merely a collection of messages reprinted verbatim.
RSS/XML Support for Students:
This topic is for announcements of any opportunity for students which is aimed at supporting their efforts to gain a degree, including graduate assistantships. Post-docs are not included in this topic.
RSS/XML Journal Tables of Contents:
Publishers' announcements of journals and their tables of contents.
