The language of the media has increasingly become a focus of attention in
recent years. This conference plans to explore two aspects of the topic:
1. The use of language by the media
2. Globalization: the use of relatively few languages, especially English, 
in the world-wide media and the Internet.

Language of the conference: English

by email as PLAIN TEXT to languageell.ox.ac.uk or on paper by regular

Proposals should contain: title of proposed paper, name of author(s),
contact email address, contact postal address, abstract, relevant 
references. Only one abstract per author(s) will be considered.
