Message 1: Chinese dialectology conferences

Date: Thu, 25 Jan 1996 23:13:00 PST
From: David Prager Branner <>
Subject: Chinese dialectology conferences
Two meetings on Chinese dialectology, comprising 18 papers, will take
place in mid-March of this year, in Philadelphia. 

One is the Yuen Ren Society Conference on Fresh Dialect Fieldwork, meeting
on 17 March in the afternoon. There will be eight half-hour papers
presenting either material from hitherto undescribed Chinese dialects, or
new material from known dialects. 

The other is two panels at the 206th meeting of the American Oriental
Society, meeting on the afternoon of 18 March and the morning of 19 March. 
There will be ten fifteen-minute papers, six of which deal with dialect
classification and four of which deal with dialect phonology. 

The Yuen Ren Society for the Promotion of Chinese Dialect Fieldwork is a
loose group of fieldworkers and descriptive linguists specializing in
Chinese dialects. We hold an annual meeting, sponsor panels at other
meetings, and publish an occasional journal that is *filled* with
interesting data.
