Subject:  Final call for papers (reminder): Snippets


   The deadline for submissions to Issue 6
of the syntax-semantics newsletter _Snippets_is

             * April 15, 2002 *

  (not April 1 as mistakenly specified in the
           hard copies of Issue 5)

Issues 1 through 5 are accessible at the web site


   From the SNIPPETS Editorial Statement:

  The aim of _Snippets_ is to publish specific remarks that
  motivate research or that make theoretical points germane to
  current work. The ideal contribution is the ideal footnote: a
  side remark that taken on its own is not worth lengthy development
  but that needs to be said.
  We will publish notes that contribute to the study of _syntax and
  semantics in generative grammar_. The notes are to be brief,
  self-contained and explicit. They may do any of the following

  a. point out an empirical phenomenon that goes against accepted
  generalizations or that shows that some aspect of a theory is
  b. point out unnoticed minimal pairs that fall outside the scope
  of any existing theory;
  c. point out an empirical phenomenon that confirms the
  predictions of a theory in an area where the theory has not
  been tested;
  d. explicitly describe technical inconsistencies in a theory or
  in a set of frequently adopted assumptions;
  e. explicitly describe unnoticed assumptions that underlie a
  theory or assumptions that a theory needs to be supplemented
  with in order to make desired predictions;
  f. propose an idea for a pilot experiment in language acquisition
  or language processing that directly bears on theoretical
  g. call attention to little-known or forgotten literature in
  which issues of immediate relevance are discussed.

  We will solicit submissions issue by issue. A new submission
  deadline will be announced for each issue, and the submissions that
  we receive we will consider only for that issue. The submissions
  that we accept will be printed in the upcoming issue; none will be
  scheduled for a later issue.

  Submissions are to be a _maximum_ of 500 words (including examples),
  with an additional half page allowed for diagrams, tables and
  references. Given that we envision the submissions themselves as
  footnotes, _the submissions may not contain footnotes of their own_.
  The ideal submission is one paragraph; a submission of five lines is
  perfectly acceptable. _We will not consider abstracts_.

  We will accept electronic submissions at the address
          snippets at unimi.it
  Paper submissions should be sent to

  Caterina Donati
  Facolta' di Lingue
  Universita' di Urbino
  Piazza Rinascimento 7
  61029 Urbino

  We strongly encourage electronic submissions. Electronic
  submissions may take the form of the text of an e-mail message, or
  an attached file. The attached file should be a simple text file,
  a Word file (Mac or Windows), or a Rich Text Format (RTF) file.
  All submissions must state the name and affiliation of the
  author(s), and a (postal or electronic) return address.
