Call for papers

First North American Phonology Conference (NAPhC)

The Linguistics Program at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec will
host the First North American Phonology Conference (NAPhC) from
April 28-30th, 2000. We are founding this conference in association with
a number of Canadian Universities in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto and we
expect the conference to be held every other year on a rotation among
these, and perhaps other, institutions in North America. 

The Concordia Linguistics Students Association will be hosting a talk by
Morris Halle of MIT on the evening of Thursday, April 27th, so
conference participants will want to arrive early enough to attend this
special event.

Abstract submission is invited on any area of theoretical phonology, 
although, in recognition of the ten-year anniversary of the 
publication of Inkelas and Zec's "Phonology-Syntax Connection", 
we especially hope to have submissions on phonology above the word
level. Graduate students are encouraged to submit abstracts.

Abstract length is not limited--complete papers may be submitted for
evaluation. Papers may be submitted and presented in French or English.

We are pleased to announce that the following phonologists
have all accepted invitations to the conference:

Abigail Cohn (Cornell)
Sharon Inkelas (Berkeley)
Glyne Piggott (McGill)
Keren Rice (Toronto)
Donca Steriade (UCLA)

Accepted papers will be allotted 40 minutes, including discussion time.
Papers not accepted as talks will be considered for the Poster Sessions.
Please indicate in your message if you do NOT want to be considered for
a poster presentation. 

Abstracts must be submitted electronically to

Deadline for receipt of abstracts is December 15, 1999. Registration
information will be provided after the announcement of the program in
Preferred formats in decreasing order are pdf, ps, plain text, WORD
(Mac or Windows), WordPerfect (Mac or Windows). Word and Wordperfect
users should use no other phonetics fonts than SIL Doulos (available
at If you make a
ps file under Windows or Mac, please verify its integrity before
sending it.

Message 2: Journal of Germanic Linguistics

Date: Thu, 09 Dec 1999 08:23:21 -0600
From: Mark L. Louden <>
Subject: Journal of Germanic Linguistics

Submissions are now being solicited for the Journal of Germanic
Linguistics (formerly the American Journal of Germanic Linguistics and
Literatures), a refereed journal which is to be published quarterly
for the Society for Germanic Linguistics (formerly the Society for
Germanic Philology) by Cambridge University Press starting in 2001.

Like its predecessor, the JGL will carry original articles, reviews,
and notes on synchronic and diachronic issues pertaining to Germanic
languages and dialects from the earliest phases to the present,
including English (to 1500) and the extraterritorial varieties.
Contributions are invited on the phonological, morphological,
syntactic, and semantic analysis of these languages and dialects, as
well as their historical development, both linguistic and textual.
Especially welcome are contributions which address questions of
interest to a broad range of scholars concerned with general issues in
formal theory, sociolinguistics, and psycholinguistics.

Mss. of articles should be submitted in *four* (4) copies to the Chair
of the Editorial Committee. They are refereed by at least two
qualified scholars in a double-blind evaluation process. Authors
should not identify themselves in the text. Identification should be
provided on a separate sheet, giving the title, name of author(s),
affiliation, preferred mailing address, telephone number(s), fax
number, and e-mail address. Authors will be informed of a decision
within two to four months. Each ms. submitted for publication should
be accompanied by an abstract of about 100 words, summarizing the
conceptual concept of the article. It should be typed (double spaced)
on a separate sheet of paper and also sent via email to the Chair of
the Editorial Committee

Submissions and any questions may be directed to:
