FYI: New Student Organization for Sociolx & Anthro

Author: Rofheart

FYI Body: SASAL (Student Association for Sociolinguistics and Anthropological

We would like to announce a new organization for students studying or
interested in sociolinguistics and/or anthropological linguistics. SASAL is
an informal forum for students to discuss research and student concerns, as
well as a means to get to know other students with similar interests from
different schools around the world.

SASAL's website is located at http://www.ncsu.edu/linguistics/sasal

We are in the process of forming a mailing list for all who want to join. We
are also scheduled to hold an informal meeting during the NWAVE conference in
Toronto (Oct. 14-17, 1999).

For further information, please contact Maryam Bakht-Rofhear
<mmb239@is9.nyu.edu> or Uri Horesh <urihores@post.tau.ac.il>.
