The Societas Linguistica Europaea announces the establishment of three awards for outstanding publications: an annual award for the best paper appearing in Folia Linguistica or Folia Linguistica Historica and two book awards to be awarded in alternate years. Each year, then, two awards will be given: one paper award and one book award. The awards are as follows:
