 on topics concerning
 the interrelationships between language, culture and society
 in the cases of English and Japanese

 4th International Conference on Cross-Cultural Communication
 March 24-28, 1993
 San Antonio, Texas

I am interested in organizing a panel with the preliminary title,
"Interrelationships between Language, Culture and Society: The Cases
of English and Japanese." Although the deadline of submission of an
abstract (December 18, 1992) differs from the one set for the
Conference, I have been authorized by one of the program committee
members to set a different deadline.

Papers of interest include (but are not limited to) possible demonstrations
of the following: shared principles of linguistic, cultural
(and possibly social) organization; conceptual interfaces between
language and culture; interrelationships between cultural identity
and language use.

Deadline for receipt of abstracts is December 18, 1992.

Please send abstracts (one page), suggestions and inquiries ASAP to:
