Call for Papers

ANS invites précis and abstracts for papers and program suggestions for its
annual meeting to be held in conjunction with the Linguistic Society of
America (LSA), the American Dialect Society (ADS), and other allied,
professional organizations. The 2011 meeting will be at the Hilton
Pittsburgh, January 6-9, 2011.

Papers in any area of onomastics are appropriate, and a précis of not more
than 500 words, along with a 100-word abstract for publication both the LSA
and ANS meeting programs, should be submitted as soon as convenient but
no later than August 15, 2010. In the précis, the subject of the proposed
paper should be stated in a simple, topic sentence, which is then effectively
supported by substantiating information and specific examples.

The preferred mode of transmission for both the précis and accompanying
abstract is by an introductory e-mail with attachment sent to
ANS1stVPyahoo.com, with "ANS Proposal" in the subject line. (Contact
ANS1stVPyahoo.com for surface mail instructions, if necessary.)
Members and other interested parties who will need additional time to
secure international payments and plan for travel to the United States are
urged to submit their précis and abstracts as soon as possible to be able to
make the necessary arrangements to be present in January.

All précis will be evaluated anonymously, and their authors will be notified
on or before September 15, 2010. The abstracts for papers that are
accepted will be published in the LSA Meeting Handbook. Abstracts and
biographical information for each participant, which will be requested at the
time the proposal is accepted, will be printed in an abbreviated ANS

Membership in ANS is a requirement of all presenters, who must also pay
the LSA conference registration fee. This fee allows one access to all LSA,
ADS, and other allied organizations' sessions, the plenary sessions, the
book exhibits, and the job placement service. It also makes one eligible for
a reduced rate at the conference hotel. Presenters will also be expected to
pay an additional, incidental registration fee to ANS to cover expenses for
any items not provided by LSA. Papers that are accepted for presentation
must be read by their author or co-author. In the event that authors are
unable to attend the meeting, papers will not be presented or read by third
