 CALL FOR PAPERS

 The Georgetown Linguistics Society
 presents

 DISCOURSE AS MOSAIC
 linguistic re/production
	 		of
	 	 identities & ideologies		

			 GLS 1996
	 October 11-13, 1996 at Georgetown University

mosaic i.a. Pertaining to that form of art in which pictures and
patterns are produced by the joining together of minute pieces of
glass, stone, or other hard substances of different colors.

The theme of GLS 1996, Discourse as Mosaic: linguistic re/production
of identities and ideologies, captures the multiple ways in which
linguistic features and strategies create and reflect coherent social
meanings. We encourage papers which illuminate how local linguistic
practices produce and reproduce identities andd ideologies, and how,
in turn, identities and ideologies simultaneously constrain those
practices. The metaphor of mosaic stems from this relationship: the
interaction of small and large patterns to yield a coherent whole.
Works submitted may include, but are not limited to, such areas as
discourse in the media, the workplace, the classroom, everyday
conversation, and in medical, political, legal, religious, and other
institutional contexts. Papers should be based on natural language
data.

SUBMISSIONS. Abstracts must be received by GLS no later than Friday,
March 18, 1996. Individual presentation of papers will be 20 minutes
long with 10 additional minutes for discussion. Please send three
copies of an anonymous 500-word double-spaced abstract (hard copy
preferred, e-mail accepted). On a separate sheet, provide your name,
paper title, mailing and e-mail address, phone number, and
institutional affiliation. In addition, please submit a 100 word
summary of the paper for the conference program.

Message 2: Contrastive verb valency AILA session

Date: Mon, 11 Dec 1995 11:05:17 Contrastive verb valency AILA session
From: Dirk Noel <noelruca.ua.ac.be>
Subject: Contrastive verb valency AILA session


The University of Ghent's Contrastive Grammar Research Group
(CONTRAGRAM) is organizing a special session on contrastive verb
valency research at the 11th World Congress of Applied Linguistics
(AILA 96), to be held in Jyvaskyla (Finland) from 4 to 9 August 1996.

Colleagues who are interested in contributing a paper to this special
session might like to contact the CONTRAGRAM group. We would
especially like to invite contributions that do not merely cover the
theory and practice of contrastive valency research per se but also
address the relevance of this kind of research to language teaching,
(automated) dictionary compilation, automatic translation, etc.

Please contact bart.defrancqrug.ac.be, or write to:
