  • EDITORIAL POLICY

    American Speech is concerned principally with the English language in the Western Hemisphere, although contributions dealing with English in other parts of the world, with other languages influencing English or influenced by it, and with general linguistic theory may also be submitted for consideration by the Editorial Board. The journal welcomes articles dealing with current usage, dialectology, and the history and structure of English. American Speech is not committed to any particular theoretical framework, but preference is given to articles that are likely to be of interest to a wide readership.

    MANUSCRIPTS FOR SUBMISSION

    Books for review, manuscripts of articles for American Speech, and studies of monograph length for the Publication of the American Dialect Society series should be e-mailed to managing editor Charles E. Carson at amspeech@dukeupress.edu or mailed to him at American Speech, Duke University Press, 905 W. Main St., 18B, Durham, NC 27701. Send items for possible inclusion in "Among the New Words" to woty@americandialect.org.

    Manuscripts should be prepared in conformity with The Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed., 2010). Documentation must be given parenthetically in the text using the author-date system (chap. 15), with a list of references at the end prepared in the humanities style. Substantive notes should appear at the end of the article before the references list. Figures, tables, and graphic materials may be placed within the manuscript at their first mention or on separate pages at the end of the manuscript.

    Citation forms are to be italicized and glosses enclosed in single quotation marks, without intervening punctuation (e.g., hushpuppy 'fried corn bread'). Technical terms and emphasized words should be indicated by double underlining for small capitals, rather than by italics. Phonetic and phonemic transcriptions should be restricted to the symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet. Word lists should be prepared in accordance with the "Style Sheet for Glossaries" (American Speech 45 [1970]: 141–51).

  • Description

    A Quarterly of Linguistic Usage published on behalf of the American Dialect Society

    American Speech has been one of the foremost publications in its field since its founding in 1925. The journal is concerned principally with the English language in the Western Hemisphere, although articles dealing with English in other parts of the world, the influence of other languages by or on English, and linguistic theory are also published. The journal is not committed to any particular theoretical framework, and issues often contain contributions that appeal to a readership wider than the linguistic studies community. Regular features include a book review section and a “Miscellany” section devoted to brief essays and notes.

    Annual membership in the American Dialect Society includes a subscription to American Speech with electronic access through a combination of HighWire Press and JSTOR, as well as a copy of the Publication of the American Dialect Society (PADS), an annual supplement.
