 CALL FOR PAPERS

 LANGUAGE VARIETY IN THE SOUTH
 APRIL 1-3, 1993

 AUBURN UNIVERSITY

A conference on Language Variety in the South (LAVIS II),
sponsored by the American Dialect Society, will be held at Auburn
University April 1-3, 1993. November 15 is the deadline for
abstracts of 20-minute papers treating any aspect of language in
the American South: lexical, phonological, morphological,
syntactic, and discourse features; regional and social varieties
and their origins; effects of language contact; methods of data
collection and analysis. Address abstracts or inquiries to:

 Cynthia Bernstein, Thomas Nunnally, or Robin Sabino
 LAVIS II Committee
 Department of English
 Auburn University, AL 36849-5203

 phone: (205) 844-4620
 fax: (205) 844-2378
 e-mail: lavisducvax.auburn.edu; LAVISAUDUCVAX.BITNET

E-mail submission of abstracts is encouraged.

Like LAVIS I, held at the University of South Carolina, LAVIS II
will result in a published volume of essays (see Michael
Montgomery and Guy Bailey, eds., 1986, _Language Variety in the
South_, University of Alabama Press).

The conference will be held in conjunction with the spring
meeting of the Southeastern Conference on Linguistics (SECOL).
SECOL abstracts not directly concerned with Southern varieties
