What types of submisions are appropriate?

We invite submissions of two types:  (1) short essays (400-700 words) that explore or make unique observations about interesting linguistic features encountered in everyday life (e.g., an overheard conversational interaction or a written language sample such as a billboard or a greeting card); and (2) original, data-based research projects (6,000 words or fewer) on a linguistic topic.  Submissions that are either the result of a class assignment or that represent independently-conducted research are equally welcomed.  Please see the Guidelines for Authors for more information.
