Special events

1. The Henry Sweet Lecture 2006 will be delivered by Professor Nick Evans (University of Melbourne) on the evening of 30th August, with the title 'The pleasures and pains of careful articulation: stable nasal-stop clusters in Australian languages as a typological conundrum'.

There will also be a special themed session on 2nd September organised by Sharon Inkelas and Andrew Spencer, related to the Linguistics Association Lecture, with the title 'Exponence in morphology and syntax', for which abstracts are now invited. These should be submitted in the same way as abstracts for the general sessions, but should be clearly marked that they are intended for the special session. For further details, see the call for papers for this session on the last page of the first circular, and included at the end of this message.

4. There will be a workshop on Teaching Linguistics at University organised by the UK Subject Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies.

5. There will be a Language Tutorial on Iwaidja, given by Professor Nick Evans (University of Melbourne).

6. There will be a session organised by the LAGB's Education Committee with the theme 'How can linguists help schools?' with contributions by Julie Blake (Villiers Park Educational Trust) and Sue Barry (Manchester Metropolitan) (see www.phon.ucl.ac.uk/home/dick/ec/ecsessions.htm).

Deadline for abstracts: *3rd April*. For details of abstract submission, see the full version of the first circular - abstracts may be submitted either electronically or in hard copy; sets of abstracts may be submitted together for a themed session of your choice.

Exponence in morphology and syntax

Work in realizational theories of morphology has emphasized the complex many:many relationship between form and function, particularly in agreement, and has seriously undermined classical conceptions of the morpheme as a Saussurean sign (Matthews 1972, Anderson 1977). Parallel cases of many:many: exponence (multiple exponence) are also recognized in syntax (e.g. Sells 2004). At the same time, attention is being increasingly focussed on the role of stems in morphology as purely formal ('morphomic') objects (Aronoff 1992, 1994; Blevins 2003, 2005; Luis & Spencer 2005; Stump 2001, Inkelas & Zoll 2005, amongst others), adding a new dimension to the description and analysis of apparent cases of multiple exponence in morphology.

We invite papers which develop such theoretical ideas and which explore the complexity of exponence in morphology and/or syntax. Some of the questions we have in mind include, but are by no means limited to the following: 'how is exponence factored out between stems, affixes and non-concatenative exponents such as tone, length, or stress alternations?', 'how are stems organized into types within paradigmatic systems?', 'to what degree does multiple exponence involve co-dependency between a morphomic stem and affix, as opposed to semantically redundant affixation', 'how does reduplication relate to affixal, stem-based and non-concatenative exponence in a realizational framework?', 'how do we distinguish between a process which selects distinct, albeit related stems or affixes, from a process which selects a single stem/affix which then displays (perhaps suppletive) allomorphy?', 'what parallel kinds of multiple exponence phenomena are found in syntax?', 'in cases of partial grammaticalization, in which a construction shows some syntactic and some morphological properties, how is the division of labour best described?'. The answers to some of these questions will require an explicit account of how morphology and syntax interrelate. For instance, will it ultimately prove necessary to adopt some version of Construction Grammar to achieve a smooth interface between the two components? We particularly welcome submissions which address this more general issue.

E-MAIL 250-500 WORD ABSTRACTS TO lasso2006tamiu.edu

- Abstracts for papers or posters in any area of linguistics are welcome, although proposals on the theme are particularly encouraged, as are proposals dealing with language issues of special interest in the Southwest.

- Proposals for complete panels with 2-4 speakers are also welcome. Early submission of panel proposals is desirable.

- Presentation time for papers will be twenty minutes plus ten minutes for discussion.

- Abstracts may be in English or Spanish. Presentations should be given in the same language as the abstract.

- Only one abstract as single author and a second as co-author will be accepted from any one individual.

- Submissions by graduate students are welcome, and students are eligible for the Helmut Esau Prize, a $250 cash award.

- 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. In general, omit the bibliography. 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.

- Abstracts should be e-mailed to lasso2006tamiu.edu as a PDF, Microsoft Word, RTF, or text file attachment. 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 Kati Pletsch de García, Texas A&M International University, 5201 University Blvd, Laredo, TX 78041.

- 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.

- 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 program. For membership information, contact LASSO Executive Director Patricia MacGregor-Mendoza at nmsu.edu>.
