Comme lors des premi�res journ�es, nous avons choisi un objet central
susceptible d'int�resser simultan�ment plusieurs champs de recherche, afin
de permettre des �changes entre sp�cialistes de diff�rents domaines.

Le sujet propos� (les universaux), qui a donn� lieu d�j� � des colloques et
journ�es de reflexion r�cemment en France, concernera ici les objets
sonores (segments, syllabes, prosodie etc) et s'articulera autour des
questions suivantes.
Comment peut-on penser actuellement les rapports entre forme et substance,
cette dichotomie est-elle pertinente aujourd'hui ?
Avons-nous besoin d'avoir recours � la notion d'universaux, et dans
l'affirmative, comment la d�finir, pour construire une grammaire
cognitivement plausible ?
Comment s'articule la question des universaux sonores sur le probl�me plus
g�n�ral de l'existence d'universaux cognitifs . En d'autres termes, si nous
avons recours � une telle notion, avec quel degr� de sp�cificit� avons-nous
� concevoir les universaux ?

in theoreticaland computational linguistics from the Pacific Asia
region. The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for recent
work in various areas of linguistics and is to bring together

computational linguistics. (The conference site Jeju, sometim es
romanized as Cheju, is an island located south of the Korean peninsula
and enjoys a semi-tropica l climate and a culture of its own. It is
known as the Isle of Gods and often called Hawaii of Kore a. Right
after the conference, the Island will also host World Cup 2002.)

Extended abstracts are invited on unpublished research on all aspects
of both theoretical and computational linguistics, including, but not
limited to: morphology, phonology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics,
discourse analysis, typology, corpus linguistics, formal grammar
theory, natural language processing, natural language systems and
related computer applications.
Abstracts should at least be 6 A4 pages long (about 1,500 words),

the paper, the name(s) of the author(s), affiliation(s), postal

Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings. A
