CALL FOR PAPERS---JENGL ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Mon, 21 Aug 1995 12:53:28 -0400 From: "William A. Kretzschmar, Jr." Subject: CALL FOR PAPERS---JENGL CALL FOR PAPERS Journal of English Linguistics One of the few linguistics journals dedicated to presenting primarily empirical work, the Journal of English Linguistics is now being published by Sage Periodicals Press, a leading international publisher of scholarly books and journals in the social sciences. The Editors, William A. Kretzschmar, Jr., and Charles F. Meyer, continue to invite submissions on the modern and historical periods of the English language. The Journal of English Linguistics normally prints synchronic and diachronic studies on subjects from Old and Middle English, to modern English grammar, corpus linguistics, and dialectology. Other topics, for example, from language contact, to pidgins/creoles, or stylistics are acceptable if the article keeps its focus on the English language. Articles normally range from 10 to 25 pages in typescript (up to about 50Kb on disk). Submission to the Journal of English Linguistics implies that your article hasn't been simultaneously submitted to other journals or previously published elsewhere. As a new feature beginning with the first Sage issue, Volume 24, the Journal of English Linguistics will publish Special Issues (monographs or topical collections of articles appropriate to the journal that are up to approximately 100 printed pages). These Special Issues should treat methodology or present results of model studies. All methodological issues should be fully illustrated with particular examples from empirical research, and should present documentation complete enough for readers themselves to use the methods described. Model studies should fully describe data acquisition and analysis, as well as present detailed results and conclusions. Proposals for Special Issues of the Journal of English Linguistics should be sent to the Editor. The journal will continue to review titles in general and historical linguistics, language variation, sociolinguistics, and dialectology for an international audience. Unsolicited reviews cannot be considered. Books for review and correspondence regarding reviews should be sent to the Editor. All submissions should be prepared according to The Chicago Manual of Style, 14th ed. Submissions are juried. Send all MSS to the Editor: provide a textfile produced by any common IBM-compatible word processor, on diskette or via electronic mail (Mac users should submit a pure ASCII file), plus two copies of a formatted printout. All other editorial correspondence should be addressed to the Editor. William A.
