Message 3: 1993 BU Conference *cancellation*

Date: Tue, 9 Feb 93 09:06:51 -051993 BU Conference *cancellation*
From: BU Conference on Language Development <langconflouis-xiv.bu.edu>
Subject: 1993 BU Conference *cancellation*


 We regret that the annual BOSTON UNIVERSITY CONFERENCE ON
LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT will not be held in 1993.

 The conference is run by the Ph.D. Program in Applied Linguistics.
However, University reductions in linguistics faculty and resources
have placed the graduate (as well as the undergraduate) linguistics
program in jeopardy.

 We would welcome letters of support for our Ph.D. Program in
Applied Linguistics and for the annual Boston University Conference
on Language Development, sent to:

 Carol Neidle, Director carollouis-xiv.bu.edu
 Ph.D. Program in Applied Linguistics phone and fax:
 Boston University 617-353-6218
 718 Commonwealth Avenue
 Boston, MA 02215

We will then forward them to the Provost at the appropriate time.
Please contact me directly if you would like any additional
information.

 We hope that the University will restore these essential resources
to the linguistics program, and that we will be able to hold the
conference in 1994.

 Thank you.

 Carol Neidle
