SPAN 6350 (Gupton) - Style Guides

There are various styles for creating bibliographies and citing authors in your research papers. Basic information about some of the more popular styles can be seen from the Libraries' homepage. Click the "Help & Services" tab on the top of the UGA Libraries Webpage, then look for "Citation Style Guides" under the "Research" column on the left.

There is no published guide for the preferred style of the Linguistic Society of America (LSA), but there is an "LSA style" that was approved in 2007. Many journals and book publishers in linguistics use APA, Chicago, or their own unique hybrid style sheet. Although MLA is rarely used in linguistics, Hispania, the journal of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP), is a notable exception.

Finally, the linguistics examples you include in your papers should conform to the Leipzig Glossing Rules.
