The Annual Review of Cognitive Linguistics (published under the auspices of the Spanish Cognitive Linguistics Association) aims to establish itself as an international forum for the publication of high-quality original research on all areas of linguistic enquiry from a cognitive perspective. Fruitful debate is encouraged with neighboring academic disciplines as well as with other approaches to language study, particularly functionally-oriented ones.

  2. All manuscripts should be accompanied by a biographical note (50–75 words) and an abstract that includes the main key words (100–150 words), as well as your address and e-mail.
  3. MANUSCRIPTS should be typed double spaced, with margins of 3 cm all round. Electronic submissions are strongly encouraged in a standard format, preferably in Word.Upon acceptance authors will be requested to supply both electronic and hard copies of their contributions.
  4. Papers should be reasonably divided into sections and, if necessary, sub-sections.
  5. SPELLING should be either British or American English consistently throughout.
  6. Line drawings (FIGURES) and photographs (PLATES) should be submitted as EPS or TIFF files (300dpi or higher),or as reproducible originals. They should be numbered consecutively, with appropriate captions. Reference to any Figures or Plates should be made in the main text and their desired position should be indicated clearly on the hard copy.
  7. TABLES should be numbered consecutively and provided with appropriate captions. They should be referred to in the main text and their desired position should be indicated on the hard copy.
  8. QUOTATIONS should be given in double quotation marks. Quotations longer than 4 lines should be indented with one line space above and below the quoted text.
  9. EXAMPLES should be numbered with Arabic numerals in parentheses and set apart from the main body of the text with one line space above and below. Examples from languages other than English should be italicized and there should be a translation in single quotes immediately below each such example. A word-by-word gloss may be provided between the example phrase and the translation.
  10. NOTES should be kept to a minimum. They should be numbered consecutively throughout the text. They should be listed in a section ‘Notes’ following the main text. The Notes should not contain reference material if this can be absorbed in the text and References list.
  11. REFERENCES: in the text should be as precise as possible, giving page references where necessary; for example: (Brown, 1989, p. 252). All references in the text should appear in the References section following the Notes.
