Message 2: Deixis colloquium proposal

Date: Wed, 26 Jan 94 09:17:53 ESDeixis colloquium proposal
From: Joachim Knuf <>
Subject: Deixis colloquium proposal

Dear colleagues:

I am proposing to organize a two-day colloquium on deixis here at the
University of Kentucky. This message is intended (yes-there is author
intent!) to assess the degree of interest in such a colloquium. Research
on deixis is certainly progressing (a quick trip via GOPHER to the Library
of Congress produced 32 book titles!), and it may be time for researchers
to sit down together and talk about their advances.It should also be possible
to publish papers in a volume of colloquium proceedings.

The University has several locations in which such a colloquium could be
held. Hotels are plentiful in all price cetagories, and Lexington is an easy
drive from most Midwestern and Southeastern universities. All major airlines
service the airport. The colloquium could take place some time next winter,
perhaps in November, giving us enough time for preparation.

Please e-mail me directly ( to express your interest. As
soon as I have a suffient number of inquiries, I will notify the network of
the progress of the project.

Joachim Knuf, Department of Communication, University of Kentucky,
Lexington, KY 40506-0042 (606) 257-7805
