ANNOUNCING THE 29th REGIONAL MEETING OF THE
CHICAGO LINGUISTIC SOCIETY
April 22-24, 1993

General Session April 22-23
We invite original, unpublished work on any topic of general linguistic
interest.

Parasession April 23-24
"What We Think, What We Mean, and How We Say It: The Role of Conceptual
Representation in Language"

We invite original unpublished work on the relationship between conceptual,
(and/or semantic) representations and grammar. Among the questions which
could be addressed are:

Can/should the study of language encompass the study of conceptual represen-
tation?
Is conceptual representation distinct from semantics?
Can the same types of structures and primitives be used for conceptual/
semantic representation and more concrete levels (syntax, morphology,
phonology)?
If not, what is the relation between conceptual/semantic categories and
syntactic/morphological ones?
Where should such matters as scope relations and thematic roles be dealt
with?
Does any level wholly or partially determine the nature of the others
(e.g. in a Whorfian sense)?
What role does iconicity play in language?
What kind of evidence (linguistic, psycholinguistic, anthropological,
acquisitional, etc.) is there which bears on any o the above questions?

ABSTRACTS (for either general or parasession):
Please submit ten copies of a one-page, 500-word, anonymous abstract (for a
25-minute paper), along with a 3x5" card with your name, address, phone
number, e-mail address, title of paper, and indication of whether the paper is
intended for the main session or the parasession. The abstract should clearly
indicate the data covered, outline the arguments presented, and include any
broader implications of the work. If necessary, append a page of data and/or
references. An individual may present at most one single and one co-authored
paper.

DEADLINE FOR RECEIPT OF ABSTRACTS IS FEBRUARY 12th, 1993
