Subject: Call for Book Proposals

Sage Publications is seeking to expand its line of books and
journals in the areas of theoretical linguistics, applied
linguistics, psycholingusitics, computational linguistics,
sociolinguistics, and cognitive linguistics. If you have a book or
journal idea, or have considered writing a book or starting a
journal, please read on.

Sage is a well known publisher within the fields of methodology,
sociology, psychology, communication, evaluation, anthropology, and
a variety of other disciplines and professions. You may be familiar
with our Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences Series,
also known as the "little green books."

For a book to be of interest to Sage it must meet two criteria:
 1. It must be good work based on sound scholarship, and
 preferably break new ground;
 2. It must have a reasonable prospect of selling several
 thousand copies over the 3-5 year life of an edition.

The successful Sage book will draw its audience from one or more of
the following sources:
 1. The book might be a primary textbook for an undergraduate or
 graduate course.
 2. The book might be supplemental reading in an upper
 division undergraduate or graduate course, or one of
 several books assigned to a seminar.
 3. The book may serve as a reference work or be used for
 professional development, i.e., a book bought by a
 scholar to serve as a reference or as an introduction to
 a subject.
 4. The book may be used as a tutorial by graduate students
 or for continuing education by professionals and scholars.
 5. The book may be purchased by libraries (generally a
 function of topic relevance and a positive book review.)

I plan to attend both the MLA conference in San Diego and the LSA
conference in New Orleans. If you would like to contact me before
the meetings, I can be reached at Sage:
