B. Organization of the abstract
Many abstracts are rejected because they omit crucial information rather 
than because of errors in what they include. A suggested outline for 
abstracts is as follows: 
1. Choose a title that clearly indicates the topic of the paper and is no more 
than one line long. 
2. In the abstract, state the topic clearly. 
3. Make reference to prior work on the topic.
4. When essential to the clarity of the argumentation, present linguistic data 
(with glosses). Explain abbreviations at their first occurrence. 
5. If the paper presents the results of experiments, but collection of results 
is not yet complete, present the provisional results in detail. Also indicate 
the nature of the experimental design and the specific hypothesis tested. 
6. State the relevance of your hypothesis to past work. Describe the 
analysis in as much detail as possible. Avoid vague or unsubstantiated 
7. State the contribution to linguistic research made by the analysis. 
8. Citation of the relevant literature is essential within the abstract. 
However, the inclusion of a list of references at the end of the abstract is 
not obligatory.

Abstracts will be assessed on the basis of the following three criteria: 
1. The relevance and significance of the proposed topic and/or the 
originality of the study.
2. The argumentation (including the clarity of the argument and the 
3. Knowledge of the relevant research literature and theory.
