rtf-encoded (on either a Macintosh or a PC diskette), or on one of the more widely available word processing packages. At least one hard copy should be included. If submission is by hard copy only, three double spaced typed copies of the manuscript should be sent.
Fonts will be:
Times for normal text,
Times Diacrit (TimDiacritPlus) for standard diacritics,
SIL Doulos IPA 93 for IPA transcription,
Ismini for Greek,
Constantin for Cyrillic. For non-IPA transcriptions, or other
languages not using the Latin alphabet, the editor should be consulted.
Phonetic or phonological and reconstructed examples cited in text will be in bold; others will be in italics. Phonetic or phonological transcriptions enclosed in square brackets or obliques will be in plain text. For example:
"Thus, the PK form comes from a source something like *[xwi^stu] and hence the best PK reconstruction is *xus1t-, and not **xut-."Do not indent paragraphs --- particularly not with tabs. Do not separate paragraphs with additional carriage returns. For examples with morpheme-by-morpheme glosses, morphemes will be separated by tab stops, rather than by means of the space bar.
"Die comes from Old Norse deyja"
The Harvard system of referencing should be employed; that is, in-text referencing with a full alphabetical listing of works cited at the end of the manuscript, not in footnotes. For example:
'As pointed out by Stalin (1951:303)...'which should appear in the references as:
'Commenting on the state of general incompetence among American linguists, Antilla (1992:36) remarks...'
Stalin, I. V. 1951. Sochinenia (Tom 1) Gosudarstvennoe izdatel'stvo politicheskoj literatury, Moscow.Note that the title of the book or journal should be underlined. For journal articles the page numbers should also appear. If the reference did not originally appear in Latin script, it may be reproduced either in the original, or in transcription. Transcriptions should be according to internationally accepted norms.
Anttila, R. 1992. Historical explanation in Historical Linguistics. In Davis W. & G. Iverson (eds.), Explanation in Historical Linguistics (Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 84), 17-40. John Benjamins, Amsterdam.
