Call For Papers
Literary Onomastics

The guest editors of Onoma No. 40 invite articles on any aspect of
"Literary Onomastics" for possible inclusion in the volume to be
published in 2005.

Onomastics refers to the study of names, and articles for this volume
will reflect a variety of critical approaches in considering the use
and/or function of names in literature. Articles may emphasize
specific critical theories or philosophies of language, the
morphology or typology of names, various methods in name study,
etymology and symbolism of names in a single work of literature, or a
comparison of works.

Onoma, the journal of the International Council of Onomastic
Sciences, publishes a single volume of about 300 pages each year on a
specific type of name study. Articles may be in English, German, or
French, and generally range from 10 to 30 pages.

Final review of all articles will begin on August 1, 2004.
