Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Call Deadline: 14-Dec-2012

Call Information:
Rice Working Papers in Linguistics, Volume 4
Final Call for Submissions
Deadline: Friday, December 14, 2012

Rice Working Papers in Linguistics is currently soliciting submissions for its fourth volume. Please see the guidelines below and consider submitting your work to the editors at .

Rice Working Papers in Linguistics (RWPL; ISSN 1944-0081) is a refereed, open-access online publication of the Rice Linguistics Society, with support from the Department of Linguistics at Rice University in Houston, TX.

RWPL publishes working papers and squibs that emphasize functional, usage-based approaches to the study of language. The publication focuses on issues related to empirical aspects of linguistics. To that end, we especially welcome methodological and ethical discussions, sociolinguistic and areal survey reports, field reports, and project post-mortems. Presentations of intriguing or difficult data, particularly ones that merit further research, are also encouraged.

With the exception of ESL/TESOL and speech-language pathology, submissions in almost all subfields of linguistics will be considered for publication. Acceptable subfields include, but are not limited to cognitive/ functional linguistics, documentary and descriptive linguistics, language revitalization, sociolinguistics (including sociophonetics), discourse and corpus linguistics, language typology and universals, language change and grammaticalization, laboratory phonetics and phonology, language processing, and psycholinguistics.

Information about past volumes of the working papers is available at http://rls.rice.edu/rwpl/.
