The print journal Language has now phased out the publication of 
book notices in its pages.  All book notices are now being published 
online in the new electronic journal known as eLanguage (see the 
announcement at http://www.elanguage.net/about.php, and the Editor's 
Department in the March 2006 issue of Language (82.1)). Book 
reviews and review articles will continue to be published in the pages of 
Language as they always have been.

The lists of books currently available for 500-word book notices are 
posted at http://www.iub.edu/~langrev/bnlists.html. 

The opportunity to write book notices is offered to all readers of 
Language whether or not they are LSA members, though the editor 
reserves the right to decline to send books to volunteers whose 
previous book notices have presented substantive or stylistic problems 
that increase the time required for editing.  Students are encouraged to 
write book notices, though a faculty supervisor must agree to approve 
the book notice before it is submitted to the editor.   Book notices are 
due within three months after the reviewer receives the book; this 
insures that works are reviewed in a timely fashion.  

The number of singly authored reviews and book notices by any one 
reviewer may not exceed 10 per year. Also, a single reviewer may 
appear as the (co-)author on as many as 15 submissions in one year. 
This means that in addition to 10 singly-authored reviews/notices, a 
reviewer may additionally have 5 co-authored reviews/notices in one 
year.  (Note, however, that these limits are subject to change, and 
reviewers would be advised to check with the review editor if they 
approach these limits.)

Additional information on writing reviews and book notices for 
Language can be found at the Language Reviews website 

Please note again that notices for the books on this list will not be 
published in the print version of Language; instead, they will be 
published online in eLanguage.  

Please feel free to circulate this list to colleagues.
