Article excerpt

This issue of JSL appears just in time for the ninth annual meeting of the Slavic Linguistics Society, 19 to 21 September 2014 at the University of Washington.

So if you want to make a proposal for a Reflections piece of your own, please do not hesitate to contact me.

More broadly, the journal not only serves the society but also exists to promote the field in general, so if any of our readers have ideas for other kinds of contributions of a not purely scholar nature, we would appreciate hearing from you. I also continue to solicit proposals for guest-edited topical issues. Finally, if there is a book you would like to review for JSL or propose that we have reviewed, please contact Associate Editor Wayles Browne. …
