Pre-registration for the fifth Formal Linguistics Conference of
Mid-America is due by April 30. But we'll take registration
datemarked by Monday, May 2. Fees are as follows:

 student $10

After this date (including at the conference), fees are:

 student $15
 non-student $20

Checks can be made to: University of Illinois.

If anyone who expected a registration package still has not
received one, please contact us. This registration was mailed to
all who submitted abstracts, to all reviewers and every
department in the country involved in some sort of linguistics.
All packages were mailed together about three weeks ago, but
there have been some inexplicable snags (some rather long!) in the
university-internal mail system before the packages reached the
US Post Office.

For those coming by car: from the north, come down I-95
from Baltimore. As I-95 joins I-495 (the infamous
Washington Belt-way), follow signs to Route 1 and College
Park. The University is 2.2 miles inside the Beltway on the
righthand side of Route 1. From the south, come up I-95,
round the Beltway, to Exit 25B. Go 2.2 miles south on Route
1 to College Park.
We have reserved a block of rooms at the Quality Inn at a
special price of $44 for a single room and $49 for a double.
The motel is on Route 1, about half a mile south of the main
entrance to the campus. The address is 7200 Baltimore
Boulevard, College Park, MD 20740; phone 301-864-5820.
