Dear ADS-L readers:

The Journal of English Linguistics would like to have reviewed a couple of
recent non-academic books that are nonetheless of interest to the musty
world of English language scholarship:

The Meaning of Everything: The Story of the Oxford English Dictionary, by
Simon Winchester
Rogue Scholar: The Sinister Life and Celebrated Death of Edward H. Rulloff,
by Richard W. Bailey

These reviews can run ~1000 words, and would need to be completed within 3
months after receipt of the book.

If you are interested, please let me know by email at crice at
If you haven't yet authored or reviewed for us, please include a short vita

Thank you.
