Subject: Still Openings at LSA Summer Institute

Let me call your attention to the fact that we are still accepting 
students and affiliates for the Linguistic Society of America's 2001 
Institute, June 25 - August 3, in Santa Barbara, California . There are 
many events of interest to members of this list, including 3-week and 
6-week courses on functional linguistics, discourse, grammar, semantics, 
pragmatics, conversation analysis, language & culture, prosody, intonation, 
and other topics too numerous to mention here. International conferences to 
be held in conjunction with the Institute include the Intenational 
Cognitive Linguistics Conference, Society for Text and Discourse, 
International Association for Linguistic Typology, and more. (See the web 
site listed below.) It's not too late -- come and join us for a memorable 
and stimulating summer!
 --Jack Du Bois

Please consult the website at http://www.summer.ucsb.edu/lsa2001/index.htm 
for a full schedule of events, and application and housing information. If 
you have any questions, please email the Institute Coordinator at

The following gives some more officical information:
"The Linguistic Society of America's 2001 Institute will be held on the 
campus of the University of California at Santa Barbara this summer. We are 
still accepting applications and some housing options are available. The 
theme of the Institute is 'Linguistic Diversity: How and Why Languages 
Differ' with a special emphasis on Pacific Rim Languages. In addition to 
the core linguistic courses, there will also be courses in language use, 
language and culture, language acquisition, and literacy. In keeping with 
the focus on linguistic diversity, there are courses delving into the 
special complexities of several typologically different language families. 
There will also be several sets of related courses which constitute 
sub-institutes, organized around such topics as Minimalism, Conversational 
Analysis, Teaching English as a Second Language, Chinese corpus 
linguistics, Japanese linguistics, and Korean linguistics. In addition, a 
rich selection of workshops and conferences, some small and some large, 
will be held during the Institute
