This may be of interest to all linguists.

Linguistics) Vol. 19 Number 1 March 1993

"LINGUISTCS AND THE LANGUAGE SCIENCES SECTION OF THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION
FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE
Last February, the American Association for the Advancement of Science gave
provisional status to a new section Linguistics and the Language Sciences. If
the membership of the section totals four hundred on or before February 1995,
the provisional status will be removed.
 To date, very few individuals have actually joined AAAS specifying
that they want Section Z: Linguistics and the Language Sciences as their
primary affiliation. Should you wish to join, membership applications are
 availbale
Please contact:

 AAAS Tel(+1-202)326-6430
 1333 H Street, NW
 Washington, DC 20005 USA

 If we do not build up section membership, Section Z will not be
permitted to hold section meetings and elections of officers, which is critical
now if the new section is to survive and develop. We would be glad to have
any ideas you might have which could help us in building this new section.
 The recognition of linguistcs as a science in the AAAS took generations
to achieve. Your support and help is therefore essential.

 Arnold Zwicky, LSA President
 Frederick J. Newymeyer, LSA Secretary-Treasurer
 Barbara Lust, LSA Delegate, Section Z, AAAS

library.

Please make cheques, drafts, or money orders payable to MITWPL, not to
