Submission Guidelines: Mss should be submitted for review as PDFs to David R Willingham, Editor, at info@linguisticanalysis.com. Upon acceptance (following the standard 3-phase blind, peer review process), authors should submit their (revised) ms as a Word.doc, i.e., we cannot accept ms formatted using LaTeX or other formats. They should be double-spaced (including footnotes and a “Works Cited” section), with ample margins. Tables, rules, and similar displays should be numbered with Arabic numerals in parentheses, i.e., (1), (2), etc. Footnotes are numbered consecutively with superior numbers in the text and should be included at the end of the ms as endnotes (endnotes will be transformed into footnotes in the text at the typesetting stage). Reference citations within the text are indicated by numbers in brackets, i.e., [1], [2], etc., and are keyed to the numbered reference list in the Works Cited section at the end of the article. Entries in the Works Cited section should conform to the following style:

1.      Banfield, A. 1973. Narrative Style and the Grammar of Direct and Indirect Speech. Foundation of Language 10: 1-39.  (journal article)

2.      Chomsky, N. 1965. Aspects of the Theory of Syntax. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press. (book)
