From: Birch Moonwomon <moonwomomizar.usc.edu>
Subject: symposium on lesbian use of language


There will be a one-day symposium on lesbian use of language during the
COSWL Language and Gender Interface Conference at the LSA Institute
this summer. The probable date is Sunday, July 18. There will be
paper presentations in the morning and small discussion groups in the
afternoon. The symposium is not formally associated with the COSWL
conference but will overlap with that event. We hope L&G Conference
participants will be interested in the Lesbian Use of Language
Symposium as well.

This is an announcement of the symposium and a CALL FOR PAPERS.

Abstracts on any aspect of language use by lesbians are appropriate.
