 Preliminary Announcement/Call for Papers

MID-AMERICA LINGUISTICS CONFERENCE
October 14-15, 1994 - The University of Kansas - Lawrence, KS

The 1994 Mid-America Linguistics Conference will continue its 29-year
tradition of accepting papers on all linguistics topics. The plenary
speaker will be Stephen Anderson, Johns Hopkins University.

This year there will be two special interest parallel sessions:
- In conjunction with the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the
 Department of African and African-American Studies at the
 University of Kansas, sessions are planned on African languages,
 African-American English, and creoles used by people of African
 descent. The plenary speaker for these sessions will be Salikoko
 Mufwene, University of Chicago.
- In addition, in recognition of the long-standing interest in Native
 American languages at the University of Kansas as well as the recent
 practice of having the Mid-America Linguistics Conference meet jointly
 with the Conference on Siouan and Caddoan Languages, parallel sessions
 are planned on Muskogean, Caddoan, and other southeast Indian languages.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is Monday, August 29, 1994.
