Call for Papers—Rice Working Papers in Linguistics

**DEADLINE EXTENDED**

The Rice Linguistics Society (RLS) solicits sumbissions from all  
subfields of linguistics for online publication in the Rice Working  
Papers in Linguistics. Graduate students and postdocs are strongly  
encouraged to submit. We especially welcome submissions in line with  
our department’s focus on functional, usage-based aproaches to  
language study, including but not limited to the following topics:

cognitive/functional linguistics
typology and language universals
field studies in Native American, Australian, Austronesian, African,  
and other languages
sociolinguistics
discourse studies
phonetics and speech processing
laboratory phonology
corpus linguistics
neurolinguistics
language change and grammaticization

**The new deadline for receipt of submissions is October 1, 2008.**
Papers submitted to RLS's working papers must be previously  
unpublished works. Copyright remains with the author(s) of the  
individual papers, however, and publication in the Working Papers  
does not prevent publication elsewhere at a later date.

RLS accepts only electronic submissions for the working papers. These  
must be sent to rls at rice.edu and the body of the e-mail should include:
·       title of paper
·       name(s) of author(s)
·       affiliation
·       address
·       phone number
·       contact e-mail address

Papers submitted must meet the following minimum style requirements:
·       15–25 single-spaced pages (normally 5000–8000 words) with 1”  
margins (size 8.5 x 11" paper);  additional pages may be used for  
references, tables, and figures
·       size 12 font, Times New Roman or Doulos SIL  (if another font  
is necessary for linguistic symbols, please contact the editors prior  
to submitting your paper)
·       title should appear at the top of the first page, but in  
order to maintain anonymity in the review process, the author's name  
must not appear anywhere in the document. Please include this  
information in the body of the email.
·       use footnotes, not endnotes
·       use section headings
·       examples must be numbered, and if data from a language other  
than English are presented, it should be accompanied by  
interlinearized glosses and a free translation.
·       include abstract (maximum 150 words)
·       submit two copies:
·       one copy in Word or LaTeX. If you use Word, please send  
only .doc files, not .docx files; if you use LaTeX, please contact  
rls at rice.edu before submitting your paper.
·       In addtion to the Word or LaTeX submission, you must send a  
PDF version so we can preview formatting and fonts.
