	 XVIth SCANDINAVIAN CONFERENCE OF LINGUISTICS
		 TURKU, 14 - 16 NOVEMBER 1996
			 CALL FOR PAPERS

The graduate school Language contacts and communication, together with
the Swedish department of Abo Akademi University and the department of
General Linguistics at Turun Yliopisto, issues a call for papers,
workshop organizers, and participants in the XVIth Scandinavian
Conference of Linguistics (16:e nordiska lingvistmo"tet), to be held
on the central university campus in Turku, Finland, November 14 - 16,
1996 (Thursday 10 AM - Saturday 5 PM).

Papers can deal with any subtopic within linguistics, but this time
the conference will have a special emphasis on grammaticalization and
cognitive/functional linguistics. William Croft (University of
Manchester) and Berndt Heine (University of Cologne) have so far
accepted to be plenary speakers. Papers can be given in any language,
but an international or Nordic language is strongly recommended. The
time limit for papers is 20 minutes + 10 minutes for discussion.

The organizers would like those interested in submitting an abstract
for a paper to signal this as early as possible, before May 15. Above
all, those interested in arranging a workshop on some special topic at
the conference should contact the organizers as soon as possible.

All conference participants are urged to register before August 30,
1996, using the address XVIth Scandinavian Conference of Linguistics,
Svenska institutionen, Abo Akademi, FIN-20500 TURKU, or e-mail. Before
that date, too, those wishing to give a paper should submit an
abstract consisting of one page (A 4, preferrably on paper, ready to
copy). The title of the paper, the name of the speaker, and his
university address should be given on top of the page. All abstracts
will be distributed in advance to the registered participants. The
organizing committee will notify the potential speakers before
September 15 whether the paper has been accepted.

The participants are kindly asked to arrange their own lodging - a
list of recommended hotels is enclosed. Meals can be taken in
restaurants and university cafeterias in Turku. A conference dinner
will be arranged on Friday 15 November in the Alabama restaurant.

The conference fee, 300 FIM, or 250 FIM for members of the Nordic
Association of Linguists and for students, or 200 FIM for student
members, includes the abstracts booklet, the dinner on Friday night,
and the central conference volume. Please note that possible banking
fees should be added - if the entire conference fee has not been paid,
the payment will have to be supplemented at the conference. The bank
account number is Postipankki 800017-00038137 (postal
account). Cheques require an additional fee of 50 FIM. For
registration or payment after October 1 a late registration fee of 50
FIM will be added. Payment in November will raise this fee to 100 FIM,
if it can be accepted at all.

Registrations and correspondence should be addressed to XVIth
Scandinavian Conference of Linguistics, Svenska institutionen, Abo
Akademi, FIN-20500 ABO, phone 358-(9)21- 2654352, or -2654311, fax
