Date: Thu, 02 May 2002 15:53:02 -0400
From: James S. Monk <>
Subject: Comparative Romance Linguistics at MLA 2002 -- LATE CALL

The following Call for Papers is late because the original chair of
the panel was ill and therefore unable to organize the session. I was
made aware of the situation yesterday, May 1, and accepted to place
this call and organize the papers. I apologize for the very short
notice to submit abstracts.

- J. Monk

Comparative Romance Linguistics panel at the Modern 
Language Association Convention
New York City, December 27-30, 2002
Open topic, but papers that treat two or more Romance 
languages are preferred.
Please submit a one-page abstract for a twenty-minute 
presentation to the following address by Wednesday, May 8,
