Working Papers in Athabascan Languages and Linguistics

to be published as Alaska Native Language Center Working Paper no. 4,
edited by Gary Holton and Siri Tuttle

Since 2001 the Alaska Native Language Center has annually published
the proceedings of the Athabascan Languages Conference in its Working
Papers series. Although no conference will be held in 2004, we would
like to continue the annual publication tradition by assembling a
collection of working papers to be published in the Fall of 2004 in
both print and electronic formats. This could be viewed a conference
proceedings without the conference.

Papers are invited on all areas of Athabascan linguistics, language
teaching, language policy, and language revitalization. Any topic
which would be appropriate for presentation at the Athabascan
Languages Conference is also appropriate for this working papers
volume. We particularly welcome reports on works-in-progress;
explorations of new data; and language pedagogy. As with previous
working papers volumes, submissions will be editorially reviewed, and
publication in the working papers volume does not preclude publication
elsewhere. Electronic submission is encouraged. If possible, submit
papers in Microsoft Word format. Include copies of all fonts with your
submission. Submissions can be sent to

or emailed to Deadline for submission is November 1,
2004. Early submissions are welcome.

The following are some basic style guidelines to follow when preparing
your paper. 

- Papers should be single-spaced. The working papers will not be

large. There is no pre-defined page-limit, though we expect most
contributions will not exceed 30 pages.

- Margins: 1" left, right, top; 1.5" bottom
