Subject: 58th Linguistic Institute

1. The 58th Linguistic Institute, sponsored by the LSA and
co-sponsored by Gallaudet University will be held at the
University of New Mexico, in Albuquerque, New Mexico from
June 26 to August 4.
The focus of the 1995 Institute will be cross-linguistic
perspectives on grammar, discourse, acquisition, and
processing, with special emphasis on Southwestern
languages and signed languages. We plan to have signed
language interpreters available to make Institute
proceedings accessible to Deaf students and scholars.
Numerous scholars from the United States and around the
world have been invited to teach Institute courses. R.M.W.
Dixon (Australian National U) is the 42nd Collitz Professor,
and Kenneth Hale (MIT) is the 6th Sapir Professor.
The Institute Director is Joan Bybee (UNM) and the
Associate Directors are Lise Menn (U CO-Boulder) and
Garland Bills (UNM).
Check-in days for the Institute are Saturday and Sunday,
June 24 and 25, 1995. Classes begin on Monday, June 26.
The course offerings for the 1995 Institute are at the
introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels. Course
descriptions, which include prerequisites for classes, will be
published in the Institute catalog in the fall of 1994. All
courses will run six weeks and will meet approximately 1 1/2
hours on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Courses at the Institute will be regular UNM courses, each
course carrying 3 credits. Students at the Institute will be
required to register for a minimum of 3 credits, with 6 credits
being considered a full load. It is expected that tuition and
fees for 6 to 9 credits will be approximately $900, and $550
for 3 credits. In accordance with university practice, tuition
will be charged for auditing a course at the same rate as
taking a course for credit.
Institute Affiliate status is granted to people who do not wish
to register at the Institute as students. Besides allowing
participation in all Institute events, as well as many
concurrent conferences, Institute Affiliate status provides
access to e-mail, the library, and other university facilities
for the full six weeks. People should sign up for this before
April 1, 1995. Institute Affiliate fees are a principal source of
student fellowship funds. The Institute Affiliate fee for the
1995 Institute will be $700 for the full 6 weeks and $450 for
4 weeks or less. The fee is due upon application to the
Linguistic Society of America. Institute Affiliates may audit
courses and take part in any other Institute activities, though
participation in a few courses with enrollment limits may be
restricted. No record, however, will be kept of the work done
by Institute Affiliates, nor will any transcripts be issued.
Upon request, a Certificate of Participation will be issued.
Application forms may be obtained by contacting: LSA
Secretariat, 1325 18th St., NW, Suite 211, Washington, DC
20036-6501 or 1995 Linguistic Institute, Dept. of
Linguistics, Humanities 526, UNM, Albuquerque, NM
Student fellowships are available on a competitive basis to
both graduate and undergraduate students who have not
completed their professional training. To be eligible for
fellowship support, students must register as full-time
students at the Institute. Completed fellowship applications
with the requisite letters of recommendation (write to the
LSA Secretariat in Washington, DC. for forms) must be
submitted directly to the LSA Secretariat by no later than
February 11, 1995. Note that a special grant has made
some funding available specifically to support Native
American students at the Institute.
