Texas Tech University will host the 34th annual meeting of the Linguistic
Association of the Southwest in Lubbock, Texas, October 7-9, 2005. This year's
theme is ''Interfaces.'' The conference will feature a plenary address by Lyle
Campbell, now of the University of Utah. Domnita Dumitrescu of California State
University-Los Angeles will present the Presidential Address.
Abstracts in any area of linguistics may now be submitted to
lasso2005yahoo.com. Papers in any area of linguistics are welcome, but papers
on the conference theme are especially encouraged, as are proposals dealing with
language issues of special interest in the Southwest, including language
revitalization and maintenance. All proposals for papers, special sessions,
panels, or other program features should be submitted to lasso2005yahoo.com.
The abstract deadline is June 1, 2005. Abstracts should be e-mailed as a PDF,
Microsoft Word, RTF, or text file attachment, in that order of preference.
Special font items travel best as a PDF. In addition to sending the abstract as
an attachment, please paste the text of the abstract into the e-mail message
itself. Authors without access to e-mail may mail a disk copy accompanied by a
paper copy to LASSO VP Colleen Fitzgerald, Department of English, Texas Tech
University, Lubbock, TX 79409.
Abstracts should be 250-500 words, single-spaced in 11 point Times New Roman
font. Abstracts should summarize the main points and indicate key aspects of
the data and methodology. Use of special font items should be kept to a
minimum. At the conference, abstracts will be distributed as received. At the
beginning of the abstract, write the title of the paper. At the end of the
abstract, repeat the title and also list the author's name (if more than one
author, list names in the order they should appear in the program), academic
affiliation, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail. If the author will
not be available at his/her usual address or e-mail during the summer, provide
summer contact information in the cover e-mail. Also note whether any A-V
equipment will be needed.
Authors will receive a reply notifying them that their abstracts are under
consideration. If such notification has not been received within one week, the
abstract did not reach its destination and should be resent. Authors will be
notified by early July as to whether their papers have been accepted.
Student papers can be considered for the Helmut Esau Prize, a $250 cash award
made annually by LASSO for the best student paper.
Participation in LASSO is a privilege of membership; this means that an
individual must be a current member in order to be listed in the conference

Call Deadline: 31-May-2005
We are pleased to announce that THE 5th GLOW IN ASIA 2005, an international
conference on generative linguistics, will be held at the University of Delhi
and Jawaharlal Nehru University (Delhi), on October 5-7, 2005. Two additional
workshops will be held on October 8, 2005.
ABSTRACT DEADLINE: 31 MAY 2005
ABSTRACT: Please send by email at most two A4 size pages (12 font size)
including data as an anonymous word document/ PDF plus an additional file (Word/
PDF) with contact details along with the title.
1. NON-COMPLEMENT STRUCTURES
As Alexiadou, Law, Meinunger and Wilder (2000) noted in their joint introduction
to the book The Syntax of Relative Clauses, most advances in syntactic
theorisation leading to the development of the Minimalist Program have been made
in the realm of complex structures arising out of canonical complementation
whereas much less progress have been made in noncanonical complementation. This
workshop is devoted to find out more about the status of various noncomplement
structures, especially, with respect to their status vis-à-vis development in
syntactic/ semantic/ intonational theories in general and in Minimalism in
particular. The investigation of their status naturally leads to the
determination of the level and the site of attachment and specifically to the
investigation of their role at the interfaces. Further details to be found in
the meeting web page.
2. FORMAL APPROACHES TO LESSER-STUDIED ENDANGERED & MINORITY LANGUAGES
In the five decades of the generative enterprise, it has often been the case
that some of the most interesting empirical problems for the theory have come
from languages that had until then lain outside the purview of the enterprise
itself. Be they questions about configurationality, incorporation,
verb-movement, scrambling, transitive-expletive constructions and binding, it is
significant that the generative enterprise has consistently treated these
questions to signal much more than an immediate empirical problem, and taken
them to be an impetus for developments in the theory of FL/ UG itself. These
refinements of our understanding of the nature of FL/UG, have in turn, fed
directly into more complex and increasingly unified analyses of linguistic
phenomena. See meeting site for further details.
The organizers think it necessary that the importance and relevance of
linguistic fieldwork to the theory of FL/ UG must be particularly highlighted in
a GLOW that is to be held in India, home to, conservatively, more than 325
officially acknowledged languages, besides the 20 Scheduled (national)
languages. This workshop is intended to bring together contributions
demonstrating the relevance that work on lesser-studied, minority and/or
endangered languages of the world have to current theoretical formulations.
