From: Anna Szabolcsi <anna.szabolcsinyu.edu>
Subject: Semantics and Linguistic Theory 11: Call for Papers

 			Semantics and Linguistic Theory
				11th Annual Meeting
				New York University
	 			 May 11-13, 2001

				 Invited speakers

 Maria Bittner, Paul Dekker, Kit Fine, Barry Schein, Tanya Reinhart

				 Call for papers

SALT 11 invites submissions for 30-minute presentations, with an additional
10 minutes for discussion, on any topic pertaining to natural language
semantics, with relevance to linguistic theory. Abstracts will be up to 2
pages long, with 1-inch (2.5 cm) margins on all four sides, with a 12-pt
font. In the interest of fairness, these limitations will be strictly
enforced. Any person can submit one abstract as a sole author and one as a
co-author.

We ask you to submit novel results. If however your work has been presented
at meetings significantly more local or more specialized than SALT, that
should not prevent you from rethinking it to fit the interests of this
audience. We especially encourage abstracts presenting larger scale
innovative approaches.

Please submit 7 anonymous copies, plus one original with the author's name
and affiliation for the abstracts booklet. Please also attach a file card
with your name, abstract title, full surface and email addresses. Abstracts
should reach us by
			 January 15 (Monday), 2001.
We will not be able to consider abstracts arriving after this date.

Abstracts should be sent to the SALT 11 Organizing Committee, Dept. of
Linguistics, New York University, 719 Broadway, 5th floor, New York, NY,
10003, USA. 

Those who wish to attend the conference, whether presenting a paper or not,
should note that while we will not be able to provide on-campus
accommodation, the SALT 11 web site will soon make some suggestions
regarding affordable hotels. Please make reservations as soon as possible.

Message 2: TLS 2001 The Role of Agreement in Natural Language

Date: Tue, 26 Sep 2000 17:08:05 -0500
From: Griffin, William <wgriffinmail.utexas.edu>
Subject: TLS 2001 The Role of Agreement in Natural Language

2001 Texas Linguistic Society Conference
The Role of Agreement in Natural Language
March 2-4
University of Texas at Austin

TLS 2001 Call for Papers

The role of agreement in natural language is an issue of current
interest and debate in many subfields of linguistics including
morphology, syntax, semantics, and language acquisition, and poses a
number of empirical and theoretical problems for all frameworks of
linguistic theory. The aim of this conference will be to share
research findings and proposals on the role of agreement in relation
to a number of current issues in these areas and interface issues
between these areas including the role of agreement in morphology and
the lexicon, the problem of "dis-agreement" effects, the role of
agreement in the theory of clause structure and Universal Grammar, the
role of agreement in semantic interpretation, and the role of
agreement in language acquisition in relation to these areas.

We invite abstracts on original, unpublished work in any of these
areas as they relate to the role of agreement in natural language.

Invited Keynote Speakers

Hilda Koopman, UCLA
 The Locality of Agreement
Margeret Speas, UMASS
 Functional Categories and the Syntax-Pragmatics Interface
Sandy Chung, UC-Santa Cruz
The Two Faces of Agreement

1) your name,
2) your affiliation,
3) your address, phone number, and e-mail address,
4) the title of the paper, and

Morphology, Syntax, Semantics, Language Acquisition, etc.)
