CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

One Day Conference:
Spoken bilingual databases: transciption, analysis, exchange

Saturday 16th September 2000
Department of Linguistics and Modern English Language
Lancaster University, Lancaster LA1 4YT, England

This conference aims to bring together researchers working in
different contexts with bilingual spoken data (code-switching and
other forms of language contact) in any languages. The focus will be
on issues of transciption, encoding, analysis (especially automated
analysis), and exchange of data among researchers. The conference
coincides with the publication (in June 2000) of the LIDES Coding
Manual: A Document for Preparing and Analysing Language Interaction
Data by the The LIPPS Group (Language Interaction in Plurilingual and
Plurilectal Speakers).

There will be a conference fee of 20 pounds which will include
lunch. Limited on-campus accommodation is available. Further
information, about both the LIPPS project and the conference, is
posted on the Conference web site at
http://www.ling.lancs.ac.uk/staff/mark/LIPPS/Announce.htm 
where you can also register using the on-line registration form.
