Call for papers: Special Issue celebrating Biological Foundations of Language

 
Eric Lenneberg’s book Biological Foundations of Language constitutes one of the founding documents of the field. This by now classic book was first published in 1967, meaning that next year will mark the 50th anniversary of its publication. In order to highlight the importance of this book as well as the lasting influence of Lenneberg’s work, Biolinguistics will be publishing a special issue that seeks to provide a fresh look at this true classic. We believe that this anniversary provides an excellent opportunity for inviting researchers to reread Biological Foundations of Language and thus revisit Lenneberg’s ideas contained therein, as well as his body of thought in general. Generally speaking, researchers are encouraged to (re-)explore this classical book from a contemporary as well as historical point of view. We are especially interested in contributions of experts who are willing to revisit a particular part of Biological foundations of language that is relevant to their speciality.
