Popular items for the new school year

As a new school year begins, here's a roundup of several popular Cascadilla Press items for students and professors.

Surviving Linguistics: A Guide for Graduate Students is now on its 6th printing in just over a year! This helpful guide is making life easier for linguistics students everywhere.

Our syntax font Arboreal is a great way to create syntactic trees, and works with the latest MacOS 10.4 and Windows Vista operating systems, as well as with older Mac and Windows systems. Arboreal for Windows (ArborWin) and Arboreal for Mac have some differences, so make sure you let us know whether you need the Windows or Mac version when you order.

For those teaching the IPA, we offer IPA Bingo for large classes and Magnetic Phonetics 2 for small groups. We also offer sets of convenient IPA reference cards you can hand out to your students, where each card shows the entire current IPA chart. And what room is truly well-adorned without an office-sized (14" x 20") or classroom-sized (23" x 35") IPA chart poster?

This volume contains 16 papers selected from the 37th Annual Conference on African Linguistics (ACAL 37), which was held at the University of Oregon on April 6-9, 2006. The papers included are significant for increasing the database of detailed studies of individual African languages. Several of the papers deal with contact among multiple languages and consequent areal effects, as well as language endangerment under contact. Additionally, all of the papers in the first section of the volume, plus three of the morphosyntax papers, are important for improving our understanding of historical dynamics in the languages and language families of the African continent.

Proceedings from Cascadilla Proceedings Project are published in library binding and on the web. We offer free web access to the complete proceedings in PDF format through our web site,
