 International Pragmatics Association Conference

 July 25-30, 1993
 Kobe, Japan

I am interested in organizing a panel on computer-mediated
communication, with the preliminary title, "Linguistic and
Cultural Aspects of Computer-Mediated Communication."
Papers may deal with private electronic mail, discussion
lists (moderated or unmoderated), or interactive modes like
IRC (Internet Relay Chat) and MuDs (Multi-User Domains).
Ideally, the panel will discuss not only linguistic aspects
of these forms of communication but their implications for
identity, culture and community, or for orality, literacy,
and the history of writing. If it not possible to put together
3-4 papers on CMC alone, the panel might also discuss communi-
cation in other new technologies, such as fax or answering

Although it is rather late to organize such a panel (the dead-
line is Nov. 1), I have the encouragement of one of the program
committee members, Bruce Fraser, to do so. The very technologies
which we will talk about will make this possible!

Please send abstracts and preliminary suggestions ASAP to *both*

 during that week, c/o his Bitnet address above, or by fax.

Subject: Call for Papers: Corpus-Based Linguistics

				Call for Papers
	Georgetown University Round Table On Languages and Linguistics (GURT)

			 Wednesday March 10, 1993

The analysis of large text corpora is engaging the interest of linguists from
many subfields, as the field turns away from linguistic analysis based on
introspection to data-oriented approaches. Currently, insights are not fully
shared, as the subfields and related disciplines often present research at
different conferences. For this full-day GURT pre-session, 20-minute
papers are solicited on the following topics:

	- the design and collection of text/speech corpora
	- tools for searching and processing on-line corpora
	- critical assessments of on-line corpora and corpus-processing tools
	- methodological issues in corpus-based analysis
	- applications and results in linguistics and related
	disciplines, including language teaching, computational linguistics,
	historical linguistics, discourse analysis, and stylistic analysis

Send 1 page (500-word) abstracts to (Internet),
cballguvax (Bitnet), or Catherine N. Ball, Dept. of Linguistics,
Georgetown University, Washington DC 20057. Electronic submissions are
encouraged. Please include name, institution, address, telephone number, and
e-mail address.
Deadline for receipt of abstracts is Dec. 1, 1992.
