Call for Papers

Special Issue celebrating the 50-year anniversary of the publication of Eric
Lenneberg's Biological Foundations of Language.

Details

Eric Lenneberg's book Biological Foundations of Language constitutes one of
the founding documents of the field. This by now classic book was first
published in 1967, meaning that next year will mark the 50th anniversary of
its publication. In order to highlight the importance of this book as well as
the lasting influence of Lenneberg's work, Biolinguistics will be publishing a
special issue that seeks to provide a fresh look at this true classic. We
believe that this anniversary provides an excellent opportunity for inviting
researchers to reread Biological foundations of language and thus revisit
Lenneberg's ideas contained therein, as well as his body of thought in
general. Generally speaking, researchers are encouraged to (re-)explore this
classical book from a contemporary as well as historical point of view. We are
especially interested in contributions of experts who are willing to revisit a
particular part of Biological Foundations of Language that is relevant to
their specialty.

Submission Guidelines

We welcome all submissions that deal with how Biological Foundations of
Language or Eric Lenneberg's work in general resonate with today's
(bio-)linguistics and other related disciplines. Contributors may submit
original research papers, historical treatments, opinion pieces (i.e. forum
contributions), or briefs that are influenced and/or inspired by Lenneberg's
book and work.
Please express your interest in participating via e-mail to:
patrick.trettenbrein at edu.uni-graz.at Include the preliminary title of your
contribution, plus a 50-100 word abstract.

Manuscripts should be submitted directly via the Biolinguistics web site
(http://www.biolinguistics.eu). When submitting a manuscript please indicate
that it is intended for this special issue in the field ''comments to the
editor'' during the submission process. All submissions will be subjected to
double-blind peer review. Forum contributions might only be reviewed by the
editor or a member of the Editorial Board. Note that manuscripts may be
submitted any time (starting now).

Submission deadline for abstracts: May 31st 2017
Submission deadline for papers: July 31st 2017
Targeted publication date of special issue: November 2017

About Biolinguistics
