Invited Speakers

Nigel Fabb (University of Strathclyde)
Murray Kinloch Memorial Lectur: Form as Content
There are two kinds of form. One kind is constitutive, exemplified by
linguistic form. The other, exemplified by the forms of verbal art,
holds of a text by virtue of being the content of a thought about the
text, an inference for which the text provides evidence. Literary form
is best explained by pragmatics, with the possible exception of
certain aspects of metrical form in poetry, which may be constitutive
and share characteristics with phonological form. This account raises
the question of how our experience of verbal art relates to our mental
representations of its forms.

Debbie Sawczak (Toronto)
''Etymologies in School Dictionaries''
Ms Sawczak will explore some of the issues involved in supplying young
Canadian dictionary users with etymologies that are both informative
and accessible.

The goal of this conference is to highlight the mutually reinforcing
connection between linguistics and a range of disciplines, including
but not limited to business, Canadian studies, geography, the
humanities, medicine, psychology, and womens studies. The conference
will focus on the unique contributions which linguistics makes to
these other disciplines.

Proposals are welcomed in English or French, for papers relating to
the conference theme. Papers in other areas of linguistics are also
welcome, particularly those with a focus in Eastern North
America. Graduate students are especially encouraged to submit. Papers
