Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to invite everyone interested in the linguistics of Slavic languages to the conference of the Slavic Linguistics Society to be held September 8-10, 2006 on the campus of Indiana University. Full details about the conference are given below and can also be accessed at this website: http://www.unc.edu/~lajanda/sls2006.html.

Here are the answers to some Frequently Asked Questions about this conference:

*Are submissions from all theoretical frameworks welcome?
-- YES! We are eager to see functionalists and formalists engaging together at this conference, and we want to be as inclusive as possible.

*Are there any other restrictions on submissions?
-- We would prefer to see papers that deal directly and primarily with linguistic phenomena of the Slavic languages, but there are no other restrictions.

*Are submissions from scholars outside the US welcome?
-- YES indeed! We are eager to nurture dialog among our colleagues across all borders, both theoretical and geo-political.

Further questions may be addressed to the organizers at sls2006unc.edu.

We will look forward to receiving your submissions and to seeing you in Bloomington in September.
Best wishes,
--laura janda
