We'd appreciate your limiting conference announcements to 150 lines, so that we can post more than 1 per issue. Please consider omitting information useful only to attendees, such as information on housing, transportation, or rooms and times of sessions. Please do not use abbreviations or acronyms for your conference unless you explain them in your text. Many people outside your area of specialization will not recognize them. Thank you for your cooperation.

Message 1: Linguistics at AAAS (Seattle, Feb. 13-18)

Date: Sat, 08 Feb 1997 19:08:16 -0500
From: Sarah G. Thomason <sallyisp.pitt.edu>
Subject: Linguistics at AAAS (Seattle, Feb. 13-18)


 The 1997 annual meeting of the American Association for the
Advancement of Science is in Seattle, from Thursday, Feb. 13, to
Tuesday, Feb. 18. Here's a list of events for linguists:


1. OFFICIAL MEETING OF SECTION Z, LINGUISTICS & LANGUAGE SCIENCES
 Fri. Feb. 14, 7:30-10:30 P.M., Convention Center 307.

But since the linguistics-oriented sessions are all scheduled later,
most linguists won't yet be at the Seattle meeting by Friday; so the
section meeting on Friday will be a formality at which we expect to
conduct little or no section business. Instead, we will go through our
main agenda -- especially planning for the 1998 AAAS meeting in
Philadelphia, but also other section business -- at a second meeting:

2. SECTION Z FUTURE-PLANNING MEETNG
 Sat. Feb. 16, 8:00-11:00 P.M., Sheraton Hotel, Aspen Room.


 Then there will be three three-hour sessions of particular
interest to linguists:

a. LEARNING TO READ: EDUCATIONAL PRACTICE IN LIGHT OF LINGUISTIC
 AND PSYCHOLINGUISTIC EVIDENCE
 (Speakers: Marilyn J. Adams, Mark S. Seidenberg, David Pesetsky,
 Barbara R. Foorman, and Maggie Bruck.)
 Sun. Feb. 16, 2:30-5:30 (room to be announced at the conference).

b. THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AS A LINGUSTIC AND CULTURAL AREA
 (Speakers: Nancy J. Turner, William R. Seaburg, Emmon Bach,
 William J. Poser, and M. Dale Kinkade.)
 Mon. Feb. 17, 9:30-12:00 (room to be announced at the conference).

c. EXPRESSING MEANING THROUGH WORD STRUCTURE AND THROUGH SYNTAX
 (Speakers: Arnold M. Zwicky, Susan Steele, Rolf R. Noyer,
 Jerrold M. Sadock, and Stephen R. Anderson.)
 Mon. Feb. 17, 3:00-6:00 (room to be announced at the conference).


 We hope to see many linguists at our section meetings and at the
sessions...and as new members of the AAAS, so that we can continue to
increase the visibility of linguistics in the organization!
