Date: Wed, 8 Sep 1999 10:09:35 -0400 (EDT)
From: Caroline Wiltshire <>
Subject: LSRL 30


The 30th Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages will be held at the 
University of Florida, Gainesville, home of the first LSRL. Both main and 
para-sessions will run from February 24-27, 2000.

Please note that the deadline for receipt of abstracts has been extended to 
 OCTOBER 22, 1999 
Invited Speakers: Maria-Luisa Rivero (University of Ottawa)
 Bernard Tranel (UC-Irvine)
 John Lipski (University of New Mexico)

Special Outreach
Lectures: D. Gary Miller and William C. Calin (University of
MAIN SESSION Organized by Caroline Wiltshire and Jean Casagrande

Abstracts are invited for 20-minute talks (plus 10 minutes for discussion) 
on any aspect of Romance linguistics. Authors are asked to send six (6) 
copies of an anonymous abstract and one additional copy with the 
author's name and affiliation (the latter will be reproduced in the Meeting 
Handbook if the paper is accepted for presentation). 

Abstracts should be no more than two pages in length (including examples 
and references), in 12-point type. All margins should be at least one inch 
wide (or 2.5 cm). 

Please also include a legible 3" x 5" card with paper title, name of 
author(s), affiliation(s), address, phone number, and e-mail address. 

To facilitate the review process, please indicate the primary area of 
linguistics addressed in the paper. Those who wish to be considered for 
both the Main Session and the Parasession (see below) should send two 
sets of materials (please indicate MAIN SESSION/PARASESSION). 

Submissions are limited to a maximum of one individual and one joint 
abstract per author. E-mail submissions will be accepted, provided that 
a camera-ready hardcopy is received no later than October 25, 1999 
(sorry, no faxes will be accepted). Preference will be given to 
presentations not duplicated at other major conferences (e.g., LSA, 
NELS, WCCFL). Authors are asked to indicate prior or planned 
presentations of their papers on the abstract submission card. 

SPECIAL 30th ANNIVERSARY SESSION: Because of the milestone nature
of the 30th LSRL in the year 2000, we feel it would be appropriate to have 
retrospectives of the field of Romance Linguistics in major sub-areas such as 
phonology, morphology, and syntax. Submissions of this kind should follow 
the abstract guidelines above and should be sent to the Main Session address, 
but indicate History of Romance Linguistics as the primary area.

PARASESSION: Organized by Joaquim Camps
Current issues in Romance Language Sociolinguistics and 
Second Language Acquisition

Abstracts for twenty-minute talks (plus 10 minutes for discussion) are 
invited for a parasession. We welcome studies on either Romance 
language sociolinguistics or the acquisition of Romance languages 
(either as second or foreign languages). 

Abstract guidelines are the same as those for the Main Session.
