Message 2: 24TH UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MILWAUKEE LINGUISTICS SYMPOSIUM

Date: Sun, 16 Feb 1997 14:07:05 -0600 (CST)
From: Michael Darnell <darnellcsd.uwm.edu>
Subject: 24TH UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MILWAUKEE LINGUISTICS SYMPOSIUM

		PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT
			FOR
	THE 24TH UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MILWAUKEE
		LINGUISTICS SYMPOSIUM

This announcement is being circulated simply so you may mark your
calendars if you are interested. Further announcements will appear
with details regarding speakers, scheduling, and the submission of
abstracts. We apologize for multiple postings.

The dates for the symposium are APRIL 23TH through APRIL 25TH, 1998

The theme of our 24th symposium is

	CONTRASTIVE RHETORIC and RHETORICAL TYPOLOGY

These two areas of research constitute complementary fields of
investigation into influences on text production. Contrastive
Rhetoric has focused on cultural and rhetorical expectations
in different languages and cultures, with an emphasis on the
resulting influences on ESL composition. Rhetorical typology
has investigated the effects of lexicalization typologies on
the patterns of sentence and discourse content in different languages.

This symposium will afford researchers in both areas the opportunity
to meet and exchange ideas and information. As well, this symposium
may be of importance to those interested in ESL pedagogy and/or
composition and rhetoric.
