We cordially invite you to participate in the 34th Colloquium of
Linguistics which will take place at the Johannes Gutenberg-
Universitaet Mainz, Faculty of Applied Linguistics and Cultural
Studies in Germersheim, from September 7 to September 10, 1999. The
motto of this year's conference will be "Linguistics on the Way into
the New Millennium". Continuing the tradition of the colloquium, there
will be no restrictions regarding the choice of topics. The conference
languages are English, German, and French. Presentations should not
exceed 30 minutes which includes 10 minutes of discussion. The
deadline for abstracts is May 31, 1999. A volume of abstracts will be
available at the conference. The proceedings with the full papers
will be published after the conference with Peter Lang-Verlag.

In a break with tradition, this year's conference program will be
supplemented by a number of tutorials. Each tutorial comprises three
hours and is intended to give a concise introduction to a specific
field for audiences with a different focus of research.

We are particularly happy to offer you a bus excursion to the old city
of Heidelberg with a guided tour through the castle on Thursday,
September 9. On the way, we will stop in Speyer, whose Cathedral
(Kaiserdom) is part of the UNESCO's world cultural heritage.

Please do not hesitate to bring this announcement to the attention of
interested colleagues. More information can be found on our website at
