The Language and Social Interaction Division of NCA is seeking
submissions for this year's Outstanding Scholarly Publication Award.
This award is designed to recognize and encourage outstanding
scholarship by Language and Social Interaction Division members. The
award is presented to the author(s) of an article, chapter, or
monograph in the area of language and social interaction published in
a recognized scholarly journal, collection of scholarly papers, or
series of scholarly monographs. Any member of the LSI Division may
nominate a published work; the senior author must be a member of the
LSI Division during the year in which the award is made. Selection
criteria include scholarly merit, contribution to knowledge in
language and social interaction, and current impact on the discipline.
Studies of an analytical, critical, empirical, philosophical, or
theoretical nature are eligible for consideration.

Only actually published works can be considered, and the "curren
impact" criterion (as well as the other criteria mentioned) will be
applied regardless of the date of publication. The nomination should
include a rationale and five copies of the publication. In the case
of a book-length manuscript, the person making the nomination should
co-ordinate with the selection committee Chair as to the number of
copies needed.

The award-winning author(s) will be named at the business meeting of
the LSI Division at this year's annual convention in Chicago. The
senior author will be presented with a check for $50 and a
certificate. Nominations must be received by August 1, 1999. Send
