 Georgetown University Round Table on Languages and Linguistics



 March 10, 1993

 Most studies of language in interaction have focused on the
talk of adults, including, most recently, the elderly. In
addition, a rapidly growing body of research is expanding our
understanding of the pragmatic and discourse competence of young
children. Only a few researchers, however, are investigating the
language practices of older children and adolescents. Attention
to this neglected population is essential to a complete
understanding of the dimensions along which language use can
vary. This session will explore the ways that those in this age
group construct their social worlds through linguistic
interaction in a variety of natural settings, addressing such
theoretical and methodological issues as:

--What is distinctive about the language of this population?

--What are appropriate models for investigating the language of
this age group (e.g., language contact, flawed adult model,
interlanguage model)?

--Does this population constitute a "group"?

--What are barriers to investigation of this population.

20-minute papers are solicited on these or any related topics.

 Pre-session to the
 Georgetown University Round Table on Languages and Linguistics
 March 11-13, 1993
 Washington, DC

Abstracts are invited for individual papers to be part of a one-day
multidisciplinary pre-conference session on DISCOURSE ANALYSIS:
WRITTEN TEXTS. Contributions from the fields of linguistics
(including sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, and applied
linguistics), anthropology, sociology, psychology, cognitive sciences,
speech pathology, and communication studies are welcome. Papers
investigating issues of INTERTEXTUALITY, the ways in which relations
are established and maintained between written texts and how these are
used by the reader to (re)construct a (the writer's?) meaning, are
especially encouraged, but papers taking a discourse-level approach to
any aspect of written texts or to the comparison of written and spoken
texts are welcome.

Papers will be 20 minutes long, with 10 minutes' discussion time.
Send three copies of an anonymous one-page abstract along with a 3"x5"
card containing the title of your paper, your name, address, and
institutional affiliation to:

 Heidi E. Hamilton
 Department of Linguistics
