Latest News About the Symposium

ISLP99 will bring together researchers (not only linguists) who are
interested in contemporary problems related to language, communication,
and culture, to seek a better insight into the various issues related to
politeness in language. The symposium aims at promoting awareness of
these issues and at facilitating original research from various
perspectives and disciplines.
	
After the First and Second Calls for Papers, we received an
impressive number of paper proposals from various countries. These
proposals had been screened by the Program Committee on the basis of
originality, quality, and relevance to the theme of the symposium.
	
We urge that contributors and potential participants register within
30 September 1999. This will help us better organize the symposium.
 	
Thank you for your interest. We look forward to meeting you in
December and hope that ISLP99 will lead to more co-operation and
research networks in the future.
