Proposals for papers in any area of linguistics will be
considered. Submissions on the topic of "Language Change and Contact:
Synchronic and Diachronic Perspectives" are particularly
encouraged. We welcome submissions by graduate students, who may
submit papers following the conference for consideration for the
Helmut Esau Prize, a $250 cash award made annually by LASSO.

Presentation time for papers is limited to twenty minutes plus ten
minutes for discussion. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is June
1, 1999. Those who submit abstracts will be notified as to whether
their papers have or have not been accepted by July 20, 1999. Only one
abstract as single author and a second as co-author will be accepted
from any individual. Abstracts must be no longer than one page
(maximum 250 words) and should summarize the main points of the paper
and explain relevant aspects of the data, methodology, and
argumentation employed. Use of special font items (e.g., phonetic
symbols, diacritic marks, branching diagrams, or logical notation)
should be kept to a bare minimum. Abstracts of papers will be
published AS RECEIVED in a booklet for distribution at the meeting.

At the beginning of the abstract write the title of the paper. At the
end of the abstract repeat the title and also list the author's name
(if more than one author, list names in the order they should appear
in the program), academic affiliation, mailing address, telephone
number, and e-mail address. E-mail submissions are strongly
preferred. Abstracts should be e-mailed to:

Daniel Villa: 

Submitters will receive an e-mail reply notifying them that their
abstracts have been received and will be considered. If such
notification has not been received within one week, that means the
e-mailed abstract did not reach its destination and should be
resubmitted. Authors who do not have access to e-mail or whose
abstracts contain special symbols should send one paper copy of the
abstract along with one disk copy (with the disk labeled as to
operating system and word processing program) to:

Daniel Villa, LASSO Vice-President
Dept. of Languages and Linguistics
Box 30001, Dept. 3L
New Mexico State University
Las Cruces, NM 88003
Telephone 505-646-4541

Authors are strongly encouraged to send their completed, polished
papers -- or any other work they want to have considered for
publication -- to The Southwest Journal of Linguistics. Presentation
of papers is a privilege of membership in LASSO. Individuals' 1999
dues must be paid by June 1 in order for their abstracts to be
considered. Annual dues are US$20 (dues for students, retired persons,
or those not employed are reduced to US$10); checks for dues should be
made out to LASSO. To pay dues or to obtain additional information,
