Abstracts are invited for 20-minute talks (plus 10 minutes for

For the Special Parasession on "Laboratory Contributions to Romance
Linguistics", we seek submissions from any topic area in theoretical
linguistics, so long as they emphasize experimental insights into
formal models of linguistic competence. We encourage laboratory
studies in areas such as phonology, lexical and syntactic processing,
socio-phonetics, and L1 and L2 acquisition.

Abstracts should be no more than two pages in length (including
examples and references), in 12-point type. All margins should be at
least one inch wide (or 2.5 cm). Authors are asked to submit their
abstracts as e-mail attachments (pdf or rtf formats are preferred, MS
Word is also acceptable) with a hard copy to follow within 1 week. No
faxes will be accepted. In the email message, please also include the
title of the paper, name of the author(s), affiliation(s), address,
phone number, and e-mail address.

To facilitate the review process, please indicate the primary area of
linguistics addressed in the paper. Those who wish to be considered
for both the Main Session and the Parasession should send two sets of
materials (please indicate MAIN SESSION / PARASESSION). Submissions
are limited to a maximum of one individual and one joint abstract per
author. Preference will be given to presentations not duplicated at
other major conferences (e.g., LSA, NELS, WCCFL). Authors are asked to
indicate prior or planned presentations of their papers.
