MEMORANDUM ON LANGUAGE AND LAW

TO: Researchers on Language in the Judicial Process


RE: New Electronic Newsletter:
 Language in the Judicial Process


This is the first call for bibliographic items to be included in a new
electronic newsletter on Language and Law, LANGUAGE IN THE
JUDICIAL PROCESS. The Newsletter will be maintained on a
World Wide Web homepage. The first issues will list current
bibliography, cite relevant legal cases, etc. One goal of the
Newsletter is to continue the fine tradition begin by Judith N. Levi,
whose bibliographical work on language and law over several years
culminated in the publication of her 1994 book, Language and Law.
For the title of the newsletter, I am indebted to Judith and also to
Anne Graffam Walker; their pioneering work in proposing both the
1985 Georgetown University conference, "Language in the Judicial
Process," and its 1990 proceedings volume, constituted a substantial
contribution to the developing field of forensic linguistics. I use the
name "Language in the Judicial Process" with their permission.

If you have authored or know about items you want included, please
send me complete bibliographic citations (including full first names,
please). The preferred style is that of the LSA Style Sheet. The
deadline for receipt of items for the first issue is Monday, May 15.
Items may be submitted by e-mail. by fax, or by post:

E-mail to dumasbutkvx.utk.edu

FAX TO Bethany K. Dumas
 Department of English
 (615) 974-6926

Post to Bethany K. Dumas
 Department of English
 The University of Tennessee
 Knoxville, Tennessee 37996-0430 USA

Later, I hope the expand to Newsletter to include abstracts and
summaries. If you have abstracts or summaries of items to submit,
please send them--now or later.

In addition, I solicit offprints or other copies of manuscript or
published items to be maintained in a permanent file in my office at
The University of Tennessee.

Message 2: Spring 1995 issue of the Germanic Generative Syntax Newsletter

Date: Thu, 27 Apr 1995 11:47:16 Spring 1995 issue of the Germanic Generative Syntax Newsletter
From: Gert Webelhuth <webelhutgibbs.oit.unc.edu>
Subject: Spring 1995 issue of the Germanic Generative Syntax Newsletter

Content-Length: 2298

The editors of the Germanic Generative Syntax Newsletter are getting
ready to compile the Spring edition of 1995. This newsletter is published
twice a year and contains information of relevance to linguists working
on the syntax of the Germanic languages (old and new, except Modern
English). The newsletter includes:

Bibliographical references to unpublished manuscripts;
Half-page abstracts of unpublished manuscripts or papers published within
the last six months;
1-page abstracts of book manuscripts, dissertations, and books published
within the last six months;
Conference announcements;
Conference descriptions;
Half-page abstracts of conference talks;
Special bibliographies on a topic of general interest.

Please send any information that you would like to be included in the
next newsletter to:

 webelhuthunc.edu .

Please be sure:

- to send your material by Friday, May 5;
- to send only material in ASCI;
- to check that what you are sending is complete and error-free;
- not to exceed the length limits specified above.

Professors, students, and everybody else whose writings fall within the
limits of the title of the newsletter are encouraged to submit
information. Choice of theoretical framework is not criterial either. We
always have a hard time receiving information about conferences. Few
people come forward and submit information about them. It would be great
to have descriptions about who spoke where about what, etc. Thus, if you
recently went to a conference mostly on Germanic, you might want to write
a half-page or one-page description of what went on. Please understand,
however, that we cannot spend our resources on conference schedules that
only have a couple or so papers on the topic of the newsletter.

The newsletter is distributed both in electronic and in paper form. Since
our resources are always scarce, it is MUCH preferred for new subscribers
to choose the electronic version. Both versions are free, however. To
subscribe to the electronic version, please send an email to Beatrice
Santorini who manages the email address list at:

 beatricezora.ling.nwu.edu .

For a paper subscription, please write to Ken Safir at:

 safirzodiac.rutgers.edu .
