Special Theme Issue: Non-native Discourse

We are looking for research on spoken discourse which examines:
* naturally occurring non-native discourse (where one or all participants
are non-native speakers of the language used)
* discourse from a wide range of educational contexts (such as classroom
small group talk or tutorial interactions), but excluding teacher fronted
classroom contexts
*discourse from a wide range of non-teaching contexts (such as workplace
settings and ordinary conversation)

Research approaches may include:
* conversation analysis
* linguistic anthropology
* ethnography of communication
* other perspectives that analyze the situated use of language within
spoken interaction

Manuscripts for this Special Issue must be received by September 15, 1999

Message 2: Speech Production Conference 11/18/99

Subject: Speech Production Conference 11/18/99

Call For Abstracts
University of Southern California Speech Production Conference
November 18, 1999

The University of Southern California is hosting a conference on all
aspects of human speech production. There will be morning and
afternoon spoken sessions and a lunchtime poster
session. Presentations will be selected on the basis of anonymous
review of abstracts. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is August
1, 1999.

This one-day conference is scheduled to coincide with the Meeting of
the Psychonomic Society, to be held in Los Angeles. The Psychonomics
meeting starts with a poster session on the evening of November
18. Because many attendees of the Production conference will also be
presenting at Psychonomics, we want to stress that Production
Conference submissions should not simply be slight variants on papers
to be presented at Psychonomics.

The University of Southern California is located about 8 miles from
the Century City area of Los Angeles, the site of the Psychonomics
meeting. Information about transportation to USC, Conference
Registration, and other details will be posted later in the summer on
the conference website,


Abstracts are due August 1, 1999

Abstracts for spoken paper and poster presentations are welcome in all
areas of human speech production. Several people have asked about
submissions in slightly nontraditional production topics,
e.g. production errors in patient populations, computer speech
generation, etc. Our answer is that research with all kinds of
measures, populations, etc. is welcome so long as the research has
clear implications for current models of normal human speech
production (and not just, say, aphasiology).

Abstract Reviewing. Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously.
Notification of acceptance will be given by September 1. The
reviewing panel will be posted on the conference website.

Abstract Format. Abstracts should be no more than 400 words long,
excluding references. Abstracts that are over the word limit will not
be reviewed. Abstracts will be accepted by email only, in plain ASCII
text format only. Email abstracts to Please
use "Abstract Submission" as the subject of the message. You'll
receive an automatic reply that will serve as notice of receipt of
your abstract.

Your abstract should be formatted as follows:

1. Author name(s), affiliation(s), and email address(es)

2. Indicate whether submission is to be considered for a spoken
paper, poster, or either. All submissions that are rejected for
papers will be considered for posters unless explicitly instructed

3. Paste in the abstracts of all Psychnomics talks/posters on which
abstract authors are also authors/presenters. Indicate which author
will be presenting Psychonomics presentations, and the relationship
between current abstract and Psychonomics presentations, if relevant.

4. Leave several blank lines to allow the material in (1-3) to be
easily removed for anonymous review.

5. Title, body, and references of abstract, no more than 400 words,
excluding references.
