The Georgetown University Round Table on Languages and Linguistics (GURT)
2000 will focus on the interrelationships between linguistics and other
professions. We invite proposals for individual papers as well
as for 2-hour and 4-hour colloquia that examine language use in or apply
linguistics to the professions of education, journalism, law, medicine,
and technology. Researchers working in a profession not represented by
these strands are welcome to submit their papers within an "other"
category. Specifications for all proposal submissions follow.

INDIVIDUAL PAPERS will be 20 minutes long followed by 10 minutes of
discussion. To propose an individual paper, send four copies of a
one-page abstract. In the upper right-hand corner of all four copies
indicate the professional strand most closely related to the presentation
(education, journalism, law, medicine, technology, or "other"). In the
upper left-hand corner of one copy, place the submitter's name, address,
phone, e-mail address, and institutional affiliation. The other three
copies should contain no identifying information. 

Organizers of COLLOQUIA may send proposals for either 2 or 4 hour blocks
of time. Colloquium organizers serve as the liaison between participants
in their colloquium and the GURT2000 organizers, and are responsible for
communication among the participants. To propose a colloquium, send four
copies of a single page statement from the organizer explaining the theme
of the colloquium, how the individual presentations relate to each other,
how much time is being requested, and how the time will be allocated. In
the upper right-hand corner of all four copies indicate the professional
strand most closely related to the colloquium (education, journalism, law,
medicine, technology, or "other"). In the upper left-hand corner of one
copy, place the organizer's name, address, phone, e-mail address, and
institutional affiliation. The other three copies should contain no
identifying information. 
	
In addition to the organizer's umbrella abstract, four copies of one-page
abstracts should be sent for each individual presentation within the
colloquium. In the upper left-hand corner of one copy, place the
presenter's name, address, phone, e-mail address, and institutional
affiliation. The other three copies should contain no identifying
information. 
	
Abstracts for all presentations within one colloquium must be submitted
together. 


ALL PROPOSALS MUST BE RECEIVED BY FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1999. Send
proposals to: GURT 2000, Department of Linguistics, Georgetown
University, Washington, D.C. 20057. E-mail inquiries should be directed

Message 2: Journal of Greek Linguistics/JGL

Subject: Journal of Greek Linguistics/JGL


JOURNAL ANNOUNCEMENT & CALL FOR PAPERS - JOURNAL OF GREEK LINGUISTICS

The editors of the newly founded JOURNAL OF GREEK LINGUISTICS (JGL) are
happy to make their first call for papers. The first issue of JGL, to be
published by Benjamins, is planned for the millennium year, 2000, and the
Journal will appear annually. The language of the Journal will be English.

JGL will publish papers on any aspect of Greek Linguistics, whether from a
synchronic or diachronic perspective -- with a preference for papers
presenting a theoretically-informed description and/or analysis of data from
any stage of the language that illuminates the more recent stages of the
language, especially contemporary (Modern) Greek.

JGL will include articles, review articles and reviews. Short notes or
Squibs are especially welcome. Articles will be subject to peer review.

Please send your submission in four copies (typed or print-out) to Irene
Philippaki-Warburton, Editor-in-Chief for the first edition. Submissions
should be limited to 30 pages (though they may of course be shorter). Please
add an Abstract of some 100 words, and suggest 4-6 keywords that would lead
on-line researchers to your article. Manuscripts must be received by Jan.
15th. 2000 to make the first issue. Later-arriving mss will be considered
for subsequent issues.

Please make your submission as reader-friendly as possible, and note that if
accepted for publication (after peer review), it will have to be revised to
conform the journal's style-sheet, and submitted in an appropriate
electronic format.
