Message 2: Language in Prehistory at the 15th International Congress of Linguists

Date: Wed, 7 Aug 91 16:51:54 EDT
From: <Alexis_Manaster_RamerMTS.cc.Wayne.edu>
Subject: Language in Prehistory at the 15th International Congress of Linguists
During the Congress (Quebec City, AUgust 9-14, 1992) there will be
a panel on Language in Prehistory. Because of time constraints no
more than four individual papers will given, to be followed by an
hour of discussion. Those interested in participating in either
part of the panel should contact me immediately, by email.
Please note that the 2nd circular, which some of you may have, lists
my affiliation incorrectly: I am in the Dept. of Computer Science, not
of Linguistics, at Wayne SU, Detroit, MI 48202.
Also, the deadline for abstracts to the plenary session is October 1,
and I will forward any abstracts I receive to the organizers thereof
if I cannot accept them for the panel.
I would hope that this would be an opportunity to thrash out and
settle some of the issues concerning the methodology and results of
comparative linguistics.
