Date Created: 10/26/15
April 3 2007 Unified style sheet for linguistics These guidelines grew out of discussions among a group of editors of linguistics journals during 20052006 and were approved on January 7 2007 They are intended as a quotdefault but with discretion to use common sensequot to quote David Denison on the matter Our principles as elaborated primarily by Stan Dubinsky are 1 Superfluous fontstyles should be omitted Do not use small caps for authoreditor names since they do not help to distinguish these from any other bits of information in the citation In contrast italics are worthwhile for distinguishing volume book journal dissertation titles ital from article and chapter titles ita 2 Superfluous punctuation should be left out Once italic is adopted to distinguish volumes from articleschapters as above then single or double quotations around article titles are superfluous and only add visual clutter 3 Differing capitalization styles should be used to make category distinctions Use capitalization of all lexical words for journal titles and capitalize only the first word plus proper names and the first word after a colon for bookdissertation titles and articlechapter titles This is a useful diagnostic for discriminating between titles that are recurring and those that are not Thejournal style for capitalization should also be applied to the title of book series Thus the citation of a SNLLTvolume would be punctuated Objects and other subjects Grammatical functions functional categories and con gurationaity Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory 52 4 All authoreditor first names should be spelled out Not doing so only serves to make the citation less informative Withoutfull first names the 20th century index for Language alone would conflate five different people as J Smith four as J Harris three each under A Cohen and P Lee two each under R Kent J Anderson H Klein and J Klein 5 The ampersand is useful Use ampersand to distinguish higher and lower order conjuncts ie W amp X and Y amp Z as in Culicoveramp Wilkins and Kosteramp May It is relatively easy to see that reference is made here to two pairs of authors here cf Culicover and Wilkins and Koster and May 6 Name repetitions are good While using a line may save a little space or a few characters it also makes each such citation referentially dependent on an antecedent and the effort of calculating such antecedents is more than what it saved typographically Each citation should be internally complete 7 Four digit year plus period only Extra parentheses are visual clutter and superfluous 8 Commas and periods and other punctuation Separate citation components with periods eg Author Year Title and subcomponents with commas eg Author1 Author2 amp Author3 Please note the ampersand amp ratherthan the word and before the name of the last author and no comma before the The use of the colon between title and subtitle and between place and publisher is traditional but we do not use it between journal volumenumber and pagenumbers 9 Parentheses around ed makes sense Commas and periods should be used exclusively to separate citation components eg llAuthor Yearquot or subcomponents eg llauthor1 author2 amp author3 Since lledll is neither a component nor a subcom ponent but a modifier of a component it should not be separated from the name by a comma surname firstname author surname firstname ed editor NOT sumame firstname ed surname firstname amp firstname surname eds editors 10 For conference proceedings working papers etc For conference proceedings published with an ISSN treat the proceedings as ajournal lnclude both the full conference name and any commonly used acronym for the conference BLS WCCFL etc in thejournal title position For proceedings not published with an ISSN treat the proceedings as any other book using the full title as listed on the front cover or title page If the title and subtitle if there is one only includes an acronym forthe conference name expand the acronym in square brackets or parentheses following the acronym If the title does not include an acronym which is commonly used for e conference name include the acronym in square brackets or parentheses following the conference name The advantage of including the acronym after the society title is that it makes the entry much more identifiable in a list of references 11 Use edn as an abbreviation for edition thus 2nd edn This avoids ambiguity and confusion with ed editor 12 Names with von van de etc If the quotvanquot orthe lldell or other patronymic is lowercase and separated from the rest by a space eg Elly van Gelderen then alphabetize by the first uppercase element Gelderen Elly van The addition of llsee quot in comprehensive indices and lists might be helpful for clarification van Gelderen Elly see Gelderen 13 Names with Jr IV etc Following library practice list elements such as Jr as a su belement after names separated by a comma Smith Sean Jr 14 Use In to designate chapters in collections This makes the book s format maximally similar to the standard citation format This in turn would be timesaving when the author or the editor notice that more than one article is cited from a given collection and hence that that book s details should be set out as a separate entry in the references and the full details deleted from the articles entries author year In quot ed quot 39 quot 39 publisher 15 Journal volume numbers We favor 39 39 39 39 endingpage Thus 221 135169 Note the space between volume numberissue and page numbers Special formatting eg bold for volume number is superfluous Issue numbers are a parenthetical modifier cf quotedquot above of the volume number While it is not NECESSARY information for identifying the article it is extremely USEFUL information 16 Dissertationstheses These conform to the alreadywidespread Place Publisher format and fit readily into the rest of the standard Cambridge MA MIT dissertation Instead of archaic state abbreviations use the official twoletter postal abbreviations Note that national and other traditions vary in exactly what is labeled thesis versus dissertation and in distinguishing PhD from doctoral dissertations Cambridge MA MIT dissertation Chapel Hill UNC MA thesis Joseph Salmuns Z S 1234 PM 17 Online materials The basic information here author date title remains the same and the URL where the resource was found takes the place of publisher or c andthe rstword a eracolon journal We urge authors to include the date the
