CALL FOR PAPERS
THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA JAPANESE/KOREAN LINGUISTICS CONFERENCE
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT SANTA BARBARA

SEPT. 6-8, 1991
Deadline for the Submission of Abstracts: May 22, 1991
--
This conference is intended to provide a forum for presenting research
in Japanese and Korean linguistics, thereby facilitating efforts to
deepen our understanding of these two languages which have striking
typological similarities. The first SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA JAPANESE/KOREAN
LINGUISTICS CONFERENCE was held in August, 1989 at UCLA; its proceedings
have been published as "Japanese/Korean Linguistics" by CSLI (The Center
for the Study of Language and Information) and are distributed by the
University of Chicago Press. The proceedings of the second conference
will also be published by CSLI.
--
Papers in Japanese and Korean linguistics are invited for presentation
at the conference; papers comparing the two languages are especially
welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: syntax,
semantics, phonology, morphology, pragmatics, historical linguistics,
typology, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, language acquisition, and
discourse. Presentations are 20 minutes long, and will be followed by a
short question period. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is
May 22, 1991.

Abstract submissions should be sent to one of the addresses below, and
should include:

1) Six (6) copies of a one-page abstract with a title; name and
affiliation should be omitted from the abstract. The one-page limit
should be strictly observed; the second page may be used only for
references.
2) A 3" by 5" card with the title of the paper, the name of the
author(s), the mailing address of the author, and the author's
affiliation, phone number and e-mail address or e-mail contact. If your
summer address, phone number and e-mail address will be different, BE
SURE to include your summer information as well.
3) A self-addressed, stamped postcard if you wish to be notified that
your abstract has been received. (Very Good Idea!!)

sent out, along with the conference program, by the end of June.
