Call for Papers: Special Issue in Honour of Frantisek Lichtenberk
Te Reo is delighted to announce a special issue in honour of Frantisek Lichtenberk as a recognition of his many important contributions to the field of linguistics.
Frank published on many topics, including reflexives, reciprocals, possessives, relational classifiers, individual hierarchies, grammaticalization, Oceanic linguistics and field linguistics. He is the author of a 1991 paper on grammaticalizaton in the prestigious journal Language which is among the top 25 most cited and the top 10 most downloaded papers from that journal between 1925 and 2000. His grammars of the Austronesian languages of To’abaita and Manam have set new standards of detail and comprehensiveness in field work.
We are inviting his former students, postdoctoral fellows, colleagues, and researchers from all over the world to contribute to this special issue within the entire scope of the research interests of Frantisek Lichtenberk.
The deadline for submissions is 1 September 2018.
We are looking for academic papers ranging in length between 5,000-10,000 words. All submissions will go through the usual academic peer-review process. For this special issue, submissions will not be via the existing online submission system. Instead, please email your submissions to email@example.com using the subject heading “Submission special issue: Frank Lichtenberk” to indicate that your submission is for the special issue and not to be handled as a regular paper. Submissions can follow any consistent linguistics academic practice, but once accepted, authors will be asked to follow the Te Reo style sheet.

Review Process end date: 15 January 2019
