Some program highlights:

THEME: MAKING LINGUISTICS ACCESSIBLE

FEATURED SPEAKER: Katherine Barber, Editor-in-Chief, Canadian Oxford
Dictionary: "SIN and Jambusters: What makes a Canadian dictionary
Canadian?"

OTHER PAPERS directly on this theme include "On Making
Linguistics Useful for Teachers," "Making Saussure Accessible,"
"Drawing Connections between Language and Film Music," "The Case of
Yiddish: Preservation or Revival."

YET OTHER papers are of the kind traditionally found at this
conference, which will visit the theme indirectly: "Historical
Evidence and the Verb System of Newfoundland Vernacular English,"
"Script Switching in Written Japanese," "The Control Parameter:
Evidence from Slavic and Romance."

AND SOME NEED NO EXPLANATION: "Stall Wars: A Gendered Comparison of
Latrinalia at York University," "Ms. Revisited: She's still a bitch,
only now she's older!", "Is McLuhan a Linguist?"

SOME SPEAKERS are from the region; others are 'from away': Toronto,
Ottawa, Quebec, Boston, Miami, Honolulu, Tokyo, and the Ukraine
(Valentina Skibina, "On Nucleus Vocabulary of English").

OTHER ASPECTS INCLUDE a round table on linguistics applied to
language teaching, a publishers' display, a BYOBAA table (bring your
own book, abstract, article), a banquet in the beautiful
Charlottetown Prince Edward Hotel, where the whole
conference takes place (includes terrific three-mustard sauce).
