You may also or instead send submissions by e-mail, to: 
fasl-11linguist.umass.edu

Electronic abstracts may be sent as plain text, or as files in Word,
Word Perfect, PDF, .ps or .prn format. The organizers cannot be
responsible for problems arising from clashes of hardware or software;
try to 'embed fonts' in any files you send and/or avoid the use
of non-standard fonts. If in doubt, mail paper copy in addition or
instead. Our first choice is that you send your abstract in both paper
and electronic form, for ease of communicating with all referees.

For good advice on what is expected in a good abstract, see the LSA's 
advice for abstract-writing in the December 2000 Bulletin, available at: 
http://www.lsadc.org/web2/dec2000bult/.
