Call for Papers

Submission of Abstracts and Proposals

Abstracts for papers or posters in any area of linguistics are welcome, as are
proposals dealing with language issues of special interest in the Southwest.
Proposals for complete panels with 2-4 speakers are also welcome.

We will have two special interest topics for the conference. The first centers
on Spanish for Heritage speakers. This will consist of panel discussions and
dialogs focusing on current issues in heritage language instruction for those
who have had exposure to Spanish at home or in the community. The second,
Spanish West of the Mississippi, is dedicated to research on not only on
varieties of the language found in the 'traditional' Southwest, but also in
those western regions in which the presence of Spanish speakers is a relatively
recent phenomenon. For more information on these special interest topics contact
Daniel Villa at New Mexico State University, dvillanmsu.edu.

Deadline for submission is June 1, 2010

Early submission of panel proposals is desirable. Presentation time for papers
will be 20 minutes plus 10 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, which includes a $400 cash award.

Abstracts should be 250-500 words, single-spaced in 12 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. Abstracts will be distributed via the
Internet 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 lasso.nmsugmail.com 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:

MarĂ­a Irene Moyna
Department of Hispanic Studies
302B Academic Building
College Station, TX 77843-4238

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 late 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 present a paper and be listed in
the conference program. You may fill out a membership form at the same time you
register for the conference online (see registration link below). Membership
includes a subscription to the Southwest Journal of Linguistics.
