Message 2: conference announcement

From: Laurie Reid <reiduhunix.uhcc.Hawaii.Edu>
Subject: conference announcement



 Department of Linguistics
 The Social Science Research Institute
 The University of Hawai`i

 May 10-14, 1993

This Conference, which is planned to coincide with the end of
the SEALS III Conference in Honolulu, will examine each of
the major hypotheses of the relationship between the
Austronesian language family and other language families,
specifically the Austric Hypothesis (Austronesian and
Austroasiatic), Austro-Tai (Austronesian and Tai-Kadai),
Sino-Austronesian, and Austro-Japannese.

The main presentations will be given by prominent proponents
of each of these hypotheses, to be followed by discussion
periods in which the methodology and proposed evidence will
be critically examined, and counter-proposals discussed.
Archaeologists, physical anthropologists and pre-historians
interested in these questions are also invited to make
presentations of their latest research and theories in order
to compare them with the linguistic theories.

Scholars interested in participating, either as presenters,
or members of discussion panels are asked to contact, as
soon as possible, the conference organizer: Lawrence A.
Reid, Department of Linguistics, University of Hawaii,
Honolulu, HI 96822, USA (

The conference will be held in the Ocean Resort Hotel,
Waikiki. Very favorable room rates (from $48 plus tax,
single/double) are available if reservations are made
through the conference organizers). The conference
registration fee will be $40, or $20 for students.

National Science Foundation funding has been requested.
