FYI: Germanic Linguistics & Philology

Author: Gregor Hens

FYI Body: The web site of the SOCIETY FOR GERMANIC PHILOLOGY (SGP) has moved to the
following address:


The SGP embraces all areas of and approaches to Germanic linguistics
and philology, from formal syntax and phonology through historical
linguistics to textual editing and includes scholars interested in all
Germanic languages, from Modern German, Netherlandic and Yiddish to
Old English, Scandinavian and Gothic. The web site features
information about the SGP, its membership, its goals and
administration. In addition, the full text of the biannual Newsletter
of the Society is available, and visitors to the site will find
editorial information about the Society's journal, the American
Journal of Germanic Linguistics and Literature (AJGLL). A first call
for papers has been posted for the Fourth Annual Germanic Linguistics
Conference, to be held at Ohio State in April 1998.
