Peter Lang Oxford is delighted to announce the 2016 Peter Lang Young Scholars

scholars working on any aspect of Linguistics and must be written in English.
Proposals under review elsewhere should not be submitted.

The winner will be offered a contract for a non-subsidized paperback book to
be published within six months of receipt of the complete and approved
manuscript. Planned manuscripts should be between 60,000 and 120,000 words in
length. Authors will be expected to copy-edit the manuscript in accordance
with the style guidelines provided. 

Applicants should be early career scholars with connections to the UK,

- They should be resident in the UK, Ireland, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan,
Australia or New Zealand, or hold citizenship or resident status in one of
