This is a reminder that the next deadline for submissions to the
syntax/semantics newsletter SNIPPETS is

               * APRIL 1, 2003 *

The issues to date can be found at the website

An extract from the SNIPPETS Editorial Statement follows.

- ----------------------------------------------------
>>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 things:

a. point out an empirical phenomenon that goes against accepted
generalizations or that shows that some aspect of a theory is
problematic;
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
issues;
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

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.
