Upon receiving your order, we will send an invoice indicating the final price including shipping. Please do not send payment without first having received an invoice. We accept cash and checks, but not credit cards.

Shipping and handling within the United States is $3 for the first book and $1.50 for each additional book. International shipping and handling is $15 for each book.

Citation Information: We have provided the title, editors, and publication year for each issue of the CLS proceedings in the table below. Clicking on the volume number in the leftmost column will lead you to a copy of the table of contents for that issue including individual paper titles, authors, and page numbers. We self-publish, so the publisher would be Chicago Linguistic Society and the address would be Chicago, Illinois.

Note: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our operations were paused for much of 2020. We are now up and running and accepting orders again!
