Subject: Carolina Working Papers in Linguistics/ CWPL

I am pleased to announce the publication of the first issue of
Carolina Working Papers in Linguistics (CWPL). This refereed
and edited working papers publication will be published twice
yearly (once in the spring and once in the fall). It features
papers by students and faculty at universities in North and South
Carolina, and invites papers on various topics, including: syntax,
morphology, phonetics, phonology, semantics, reading, discourse analysis,
psycholinguistics, first and second language acquisition, variation,
sociolinguistics, anthropological linguistics, speech pathology,
computational linguistics, composition and rhetoric, historical linguistics,
philosophy of language, ESL/EFL teaching and methodology. CWPL is an
initiative of the USC Graduate Students in Linguistics organization, and
its editorial personnel are drawn from their members.

Unlike many other working papers collections, this one is entirely web-based.
It can be found at the USC Linguistics Program website:
