 WORKING PAPERS OF THE INSTITUTE OF
 SPANISH FOR NATIVE SPEAKERS

 Editors: Cecilia Rodriguez Pino and Daniel Villa

A selection of papers presented at the Conference on Spanish for
Native Speaker: New Directions for the 21st Century, will be
published in a series of working papers to be housed at the
Institute of Spanish for Native Speakers at New Mexico State
University. This series is dedicated to facilitating
communication and to sharing information among those interested
in issues relating to the teaching of Spanish to native speakers
of the language. Authors will retain the copyright to their
papers.

Papers should be submitted on disk, either in Wordperfect, Nota
Bene or ASCII format, and should follow the guidelines of the
MLA Handbook. A principal goal of the Working Papers is to make
the accepted works available in as timely a manner as possible;
submitting papers in electronic format will facilitate the
publication process.

Copies of the Working Papers will be available in hard copy, on
disk, or on-line through FTP (File Transfer Protocol). We
strongly encourage those interested in obtaining copies to
consider electronic formats, in order to minimize the impact on
scarce resources. The cost of copies on paper and on disk will be
announced at the Conference.

Papers must be submitted to the editors by June 1, 1995, for
consideration for publication. Please send to the Institute of
Spanish for Native Speakers, Box 30001, Dept. 3L, NMSU, Las
Cruces, NM 88003, or submit in person at the Conference.
