Call for contributions to a collection of essays

developed in such fields as stylistic close reading, corpus linguistics,
cognitive, authorship studies, lexicography, stylometry, etc.
Papers will be refereed by an international committee.
Please send 500-word proposals with some bibliographical references and
Deadline for abstracts: 10 January 2008
If you plan to submit a manuscript, please let us know as soon as
