The College of Communications and Information Studies, University of Kentucky,
invites you to submit papers and abstracts for a colloquium on deixis, to be
held Friday, December 2, to Sunday, December 4, at the University of Kentucky.

The theme of this yearUs colloquium, TIME, SPACE, AND IDENTITY, suggests a wide
range of topics for our discussions, focusing on the ways in which temporal,
spatial, and personal information is incorportated into talk and texts. We would
like to bring together a wide range of scholars with interests in linguistics,
discourse and conversation analysis, language and social interaction,
pragmatics, semiotics, anthropology, psychology, cognitive science, and all
others who concern themselves with deixis. Theoretical or methodological
contributions are as welcome as case studies of deixis in context.

A registration fee of $50.00 ($15.00 for students) will pay for buffet lunches
and refreshments.

The publication of a volume of essays from the colloquium is under negotiation
with a leading academic press.

Please send two copies of abstracts or finished papers to the colloquium
