Call for Papers

Georgetown University Round Table On Languages and Linguistics
(GURT 94)

Pre-Session: ASL Pragmatics
Friday March 11, 1994

While a growing body of research has focused on the phonology and
syntax of American Sign Language, the subfield of ASL pragmatics
remains relatively unexplored. To the extent that linguistic pragmatics is
particularly concerned with the analysis of naturally-occurring data, one
source of difficulty for research in ASL pragmatics lies in issues
surrounding ASL data collection and analysis, including transcription
methods and availability of corpora and corpus-processing tools. For this
full-day GURT pre-session, 20-minute papers are solicited on topics in
ASL pragmatics and data collection, including:

 - Pragmatic analysis of data, including reference and context,
 functions of syntactic form, conversational implicature,
 information-packaging, politeness theory, pragmatic
 borrowing, discourse structure, etc.

 - Applications of pragmatics in interpretation or language learning
 and teaching

 - Critical surveys of existing data sources; reports on ASL data
 collection and cataloguing projects; methods for transcribing,
 annotating and analyzing video corpora; methodological issues in
 corpus design and analysis

Papers must represent original research which has not been published
elsewhere. Conference organizers: Catherine Ball and Clare Wolfowitz,
Department of Linguistics, Georgetown University.

Send 1 page (500-word) abstracts to cballguvax.georgetown.edu
(Internet), cballguvax (Bitnet), or Catherine N. Ball, Dept. of
Linguistics, Georgetown University, Washington DC 20057. Electronic
submissions are encouraged. Please include name, institution, address,
telephone number, and e-mail address. Deadline for receipt of abstracts is
Jan. 31, 1994.

IsCLL-IV (The Fourth International Symposium of Chinese Languages and
Linguistics, July 18-20, 1994) would like to bring the attention of
those who intend to submit their abstracts via e-mail the fact that
there has been a change of e-mail address for the conference. Since
the previously announced address is no longer in service, this may
be important to many friends and collegues out there as the deadline
of abstract submission (December 31, 1993) is getting close. Please
note that the correct e-mail address for the conference has been changed
to:
 HSPHILCCVAX.SINICA.EDU.TW
