Papers are invited on topics that deal with the application of current

morphology, syntax, semantics), sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics,
discourse analysis, historical linguistics, corpus linguistics, etc.

Persons interested in presenting papers are requested to submit a one-page
abstract giving the title of the paper, a brief statement of the topic, and
a summary clearly stating how the topic will be developed (the reasoning,
data, or experimental results to be presented). Authors are requested to
be>as specific as possible in describing their topics. Abstracts should be
submitted by e-mail, where possible. The top lines of the message should
contain the authors name, affiliation, address, phone number, e-mail
address, and the title of the paper. The body of the abstract should then
follow after 4 blank lines. The heading will be omitted before it is sent
to the members of the paper selection committee. Please do not send
attachments. If submitted by mail,
both a disk copy and a hard copy are to be included. Names are not to
appear on the abstract; instead, a 3x5 card with the above information
should be enclosed. Twenty minutes will be allowed for each presentation.
