The following style/format guide provides a description of the CamLing template file provided on the Proceedings website (http://www.srcf.ucam.org/camling/proceedings.html). Please try to use the Word template file, which contains all headings, margins, and font sizes as specified in this guide. 1. FONTS AND FONT SIZES Please use Times New Roman for the text of your article. The main body of the text should be in 12-pt, while the abstract, footnotes, and references should be in 10-pt. Syntactic trees should be drawn using ArborWin or Microsoft Word’s drawing program. For IPA symbols, use the SIL fonts available online at http://www.sil.org/computing/fonts/encore-ipa.html. (Unicode fonts are those with SIL at the end of the name, e.g. DoulosSIL, and not SILDoulos.) Please refrain from using any other fonts. If you must use any other fonts for these or other purposes, attach a copy of the font(s) used to the e-mail containing your paper. 2. SPACING AND ALIGNMENT All text is single-spaced and fully justified, including references and footnotes. 3. MARGINS A 2 cm margin should be set for the top and bottom of every page. The left and right margins should be set at 2.5 cm. 4. THE FIRST PAGE The title on the first page of your paper should be centred and appear on the top line of the page, in plain bold, 16-pt size. Leave one empty line below the title. On the following line, in plain bold, 14-pt size, put the name of the author(s). Leave one empty line below the author name(s). Your affiliation(s) should then be given, centred, in plain non-bold, 14-pt font size. Leave one empty line. A short abstract should follow in non-bold, 10-pt font size. The paragraph containing the abstract should be indented by 1 in (2.5 cm) both on the left and the right. Leave two empty lines. Start the main text of the paper on the third line. 5. PARAGRAPHS AND SECTIONS Section headings should be flush with the left margin. The top-level heading (e.g. 1) is to be typed in BOLD SMALL CAPS; any second-level headings (1.1) in bold normal type; thirdlevel headings (1.1.1) in italics; and fourth-level headings ( in normal type (see template). Leave two lines before all headings. A blank line should be left between a first- or second-level heading and subsequent text. The first line of the first paragraph should be flush-left and the first line of all subsequent paragraphs indented (1.25 cm). 6. PAGE NUMBERS Final page numbers will be assigned by the editors in preparing the final volume, so do not number pages. 7. FOOTNOTES Please use footnotes, not endnotes. The number of the footnote should appear flush with the left edge of the footer. 8. EXAMPLES AND EQUATIONS

Leave an empty line above and below each example and equation. Examples and equations should be numbered and the number should appear flush-left in parentheses, with a 1.25 cm indent before the start of the example material. After examples and equations, resume your text at the left edge of the page, indenting all subsequent paragraphs as above. See the template for details of the internal format of examples and equations. 9. ARTWORK All artwork (tables, figures, charts, diagrams, OT tableaux, etc.) should be typed as part of the file you submit, and not hand-drawn or -written. It is normally single-spaced. It should be numbered and included in the running text like other examples. It should be labelled underneath appropriately as Table 1 or Figure 1 (in italics, centred) with a caption (Times New Roman, centred) underneath. 10. QUOTATIONS Quotations of less than 50 words should appear in the running text, differentiated by single ‘smart’ quotation marks (i.e. ‘mark’ not ′mark′), with double quotation marks reserved for quotations within quotations. Any punctuation should follow the closing quotation mark. Quotations of more than 50 words should be given as a separate paragraph (i.e. displayed on a new line, indented at the left margin throughout, with no quotation marks or extra indentation on the first line). 11. TEXT IN LANGUAGES OTHER THAN ENGLISH Sentences or sentence fragments in languages other than English should be set out as numbered examples, but they should be followed by a line-by-line or morpheme-bymorpheme gloss and a line of translations (all single-spaced), with other transcription symbols clearly explained in the footnotes (e.g. code-switches, overlaps of speech, etc.). Glosses should be fully aligned with the appropriate word or morpheme of the original. The translation should be included in single smart quotation marks, as well as sentence punctuation. Emphasis should be conveyed by bolding. Any linguistic category labels appearing in the gloss should appear in small capitals. 12. REFERENCES The references section should start with the heading REFERENCES in bold small caps. Do not leave a blank line between each reference. The first line of each reference should be flush with the left margin. The second and subsequent lines of each reference should be indented (1.25 cm). Please follow, as far as possible, the format given in the template. 13. INFORMATION ON THE AUTHOR After the references section you should give your name in italics followed by your institutional address and any further contact information you wish to provide (e-mail address, webpage URL, etc.). 14. SPELLING AND CAPITALIZATION British English conventions for spelling and expression should be followed consistently. Please run a spell-checker on the final draft.
