experimental phonetics, with the interventions of invited
speakers. For the second day, we invite you to submit any
communication enlightening the recent developments of research on
phonetics and speech sciences, after the pioneering works of John

Meeting Description:

Atlantic Provinces Linguistic Association, 28th Annual Conference
''Languages in Contact'', University of Maine, Orono, ME, U.S.A, 5-6
November 2004

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the establishment of the
first permanent French settlement in North America, which was located
on St. Croix Island. The island lies in the middle of the river by
the same name that now forms a part of the border between New
Brunswick, Canada, and Maine, U.S.A. The political border will be
temporarily suspended in favor of (more flexible) linguistic ones when
the University of Maine hosts the 28th annual meeting of the Atlantic
Provinces Linguistic Association.
 
The theme for this year's conference is Languages in Contact, and we
invite papers dealing with language contact phenomena in all areas of
linguistics (lexicology, morphology, syntax, phonology,
code-switching, etc.), particularly those that focus on the Atlantic
Provinces, Quebec, and New England. With the establishment of
permanent settlements by the French and English in northeastern North
America in the 17th century, the way was paved for these European
languages to come in contact with Amerindian languages, including
Mi'kmaq-Passamaquoddy, Maliseet and Penobscot in the Maritimes and
Maine, and Iroquoian languages in Quebec. The migration of vast
numbers of French speakers from Quebec and the Maritimes into the
northeastern U.S. in the 19th and 20th centuries created opportunities
for French and English to influence each other outside the Canadian
context. More recently, in the second half of the 20th century, the
arrival of Chileans, Vietnamese and Haitians in Quebec and of German,
Dutch, Scandinavian and African-American immigrants in the Maritimes,
has afforded new opportunities for diverse languages to influence each
other.

Proposals for papers treating other areas of linguistics are also
welcome, and graduate students are especially encouraged to submit.

Presentations may be given in English or French and will be 20 minutes
in length followed by 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts of 300-400
words excluding title and references may be submitted electronically
in Word, WordPerfect, or RTF to the addresses below. Please be sure to
include your paper title, name, affiliation (indicate if you are a
student), current mail and email addresses, telephone and fax numbers
on a separate page from the abstract. The deadline for submissions is
Friday, September 3, 2004. All presenters must be members of APLA.
