As the February 17-21,1995 meeting of the AAAS in Atlanta approaches I thought
it would be good to send a reminder to readers of LINGUIST that they can become
either a regular member and receive SCIENCE or a supporting member. The
application for the latter is below. In another message I will send the
application for regular membership.

As mentioned in earlier listings, it is very important that Section Z on
Linguistics and the Language Sciences reach its quota of 500 members.
We still have a way to go.


American Association for the M E M B E R S H I P
Advancement of Science A P P L I C A T I O N

I want to become a supporting member of AAAS. I understand that this class of
membership does not entitle me to receive Science. But I want to support scienc
activities and eduction, public understanding of science, and scientific
freedom and responsibility. Enroll me as a supporting member with my primary
affiliation in Section Z, Linguistics and the Language Sciences.

Message 2: COSWL Survey

Date: Tue, 8 Nov 1994 10:37:52 -COSWL Survey
From: <>
Subject: COSWL Survey

Linguistic graduate students and faculty,

As part of an ongoing study on graduate, postdoctoral, and
junior faculty women in linguistics, the Committee on the Status
of Women in Linguistics (COSWL) has developed two
questionnaires for distribution to linguistic departments across
the country. In order for the survey to be successful, we need to
find student representatives who are willing to oversee the
distribution and uptake of these questionnaires at their own
universities. The "COSWL Graduate Student Representative"
would be responsible for: (1) distributing an institutional
questionnaire to departmental administrators, and (2) distributing
a more personally oriented questionnaire to graduate students,
postdocs, and junior faculty.

We urge you all to get involved in this very worthwhile
enterprise. If you are a faculty member, we would be grateful if
you could find a graduate student to act as the COSWL
representative for your department. We plan to send out the
questionnaire materials on November 15th, so we need to hear
from interested students immediately. We are in the initial stages
of what we hope will become an on-going, long-term project on
the status of women in linguistics, so your participation is

If you would like to be the COSWL Graduate Student
Representative for your university, please send your school
address, favored mailing address, phone number, and e-mail
address to

Thank you,

Kira Hall
Department of Linguistics

Message 3: UCLA TESL & Applied Linguistics Gopher

TESL & Applied Linguistics Gopher

The Department of TESL and Applied Linguistics is proud to announce the
establishment of a gopher directory on the UCLA gopher server, with the
assistance of Humanities Computing and especially Wayne Miller.

This gopher server currently holds departmental information, and is meant to
inform both the campus, the department and the world beyond UCLA of our
activities and academic resources, as well as policies, guidelines and
associated programs.

By logging in to the gopher, you can find the following directories and
--an introduction to the Department of TESL and Applied Linguistics
--a directory of announcements, including
 TA guidelines
 student policies
 student representation
--a directory of associated programs, including
 English as a Second Language (soon to be its own directory)
 Language, Interaction and Culture Group (soon to be its own directory)
 Language Resource Program (in time to be its own directory)
 South and South East Asian Language Program
 Quechua (soon to link with Latin American Studies?)
--a course guide directory, including
 Winter 1995 schedule
 TESL & AL courses (eventually to hold sample syllabi and course desc.)
 Courses from other departments relevant to IDP participants,
 (a list compiled by current IDP students)
--a directory of the faculty, including an address list and cv/profile
 of each faculty member, including recent publications and research
--a directory for IAL, the student journal
--program information for the Interdepartmental Program in Applied Linguistics,
 academic requirements
 recent student research (a list of QPs filed by IDP students)
 application requirements, including a link to grad. division
 gopher for application information and on-line application
 soon to have links to departmental gophers for Linguistics, Anthropology,
 Sociology, Psychology, Graduate School of Education, etc. when these
 gophers become available
--program information for the MA in TESL, similarly structured.

This gopher can be expanded and updated easily. Those wishing to add
relevant directories, announcements, etc. should see me or e-mail me

To get to the gopher, enter the ORION information database. Select "InfoUCLA"
and then select "Gopher" (#7). Select the directory titled "UCLA gopher
server". Again, select the directory titled "UCLA gopher servers". Next
select the directory titled "Humanities Computing" (NOTE--this is temporary;
my understanding is that it will be titled Humanities Departments).
Select the directory titled "Humnet Departments and UCLA Resources".
Finally, select the directory for TESL and Applied Linguistics.

I am working with Humanities Computing to establish entries in this level
of the gopher for both ESL and SSEALP, as these two associated programs
are not always associated with TESL/Applied Linguistics to the outside
world, and I would like to maximize accessibility.

Your feedback is highly valued. This first gopher is a work in progress,
and all suggestions for its improvement will be considered and acted upon.
I would like to take an opportunity to thank Wayne Miller and Karie
Masterson at HCF for working to get this up and running, and to George
for his ideas for the World Wide Web (which will be the next project!)

Happy tunneling!
