Chicago Author-Date

The style known as Chicago Author-Date forms the basis for citation format in Linguistics, among other fields. The official Chicago guide is the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition. Please note that the 16th edition represents a substantial revision of the guidelines published in previous editions. For example, where previous editions did not place journal article titles in quotation marks, the 16th edition requires it. For this reason, it is always wise to consult the actual manual when compiling your reference list.

 

The university library has a license for the online version in its database collection (DBIS) under “Fachgebiet: Anglistik, Amerikanistik”. You can also access it by searching for “Chicago Manual of Style” in HEIDI and choosing the entry with the option “online aufrufen”. The section called “Documentation II” covers Chicago Author-Date style, which uses in-text citations. The other style, covered in "Documentation I", uses footnotes or endnotes and is rarely required in the Anglistisches Seminar.

 

Chicago Author-Date comprises two basic elements: an Author-Date Citation (in the text) and a corresponding entry in a References/Bibliography page at the end of the document.

 

The in-text citation includes the author’s last name, the year of publication and the page number:

 

(Burke 1966, 46)

 

In the AS, many instructors prefer that the date and page number be separated by a colon, rather than a comma:

 

(Burke 1966: 46)

 

If you mention the author’s name in the sentence, you may omit it from the citation:

Burke sees language as symbolic action (1966, 46).

 

If you are drawing many references from one primary source, you can indicate a short form of the source, or simply use the page numbers, and include a footnote to that effect. For example, A Chorus of Grammars: The Correspondence of George Hickes and his Collaborators on the Thesaurus linguarum septentrionalium could become CG (CG 65) or simply a page number (65).

 

The online Chicago Manual of Style offers comprehensive explanations of its conventions and provides numerous examples, including detailed sections on citing online sources, dictionaries and audiovisual materials, just to name a few.

 

 

Chicago Author-Date References/Bibliography

The list of works cited in the paper is titled “Bibliography” or “References” in Chicago Author-Date style. It gives the full reference information for the source, and unambiguously identifies all sources cited in your research. Entries are listed alphabetically by author last name.

Note that items in the References/Bibliography are formatted with a hanging indent/hängender Einzug.
