Format & Style Files:
- -------------------
Your paper should be prepared according to the following guidelines
(for authors using LaTeX, there is a style file tmi02.cls available,
which comes with a pair of style files for formatting examples,
gb4e.sty and cgloss4e.sty. 

-The font size should be no smaller than 11pt, and the paper size
 should be A4. 

-TMI uses an anonymous review process. Therefore, all
 papers should be submitted with a separate author ID page (in a
 separate file) that includes only the title of the paper, the topic
 area, and the author name(s) and address(es). The paper itself should
 begin with the title and an abstract, but should not include the names
 or addresses of the authors. 

-Papers should be submitted as .pdf files only. All papers will be
 submitted electronically; authors must first register before uploading
 papers to the program committee database (details coming soon on the
 Author Resource page). For bibliographic references, if the author's
 name(s) is/are part of the text, then only the date should be in
 brackets. E.g. "Huddleston (1988) introduced the term ...", not
 "(Huddleston 1988) introduced the term ..."
-Make sure your figures are not wider than the text. Don't forget to
 use italics for cited words, and double quotes for glosses. If you
 cite non-Roman script please cite as follows: NON-EUROPEAN
 transliteration "gloss" (the transliteration should be in italics).

11 PM Pacific Daylight time. Email submissions must include the
authors' names, affiliations, and contact information, bearing in mind
that the abstracts themselves must be STRICTLY ANONYMOUS. If you
