Subject: Conf. on Salish and Neighboring Languages


August 7-9, 1997


The 32nd International Conference on Salish and Neighboring
Languages will be held August 7-9, 1997. The conference this year is
cosponsored by the Elwha Klallam Tribe, Peninsula College, and
Olympic National Park. Sessions will meet on the campus of
Peninsula College in Port Angeles. Housing will be available in the
Peninsula College residence halls.

The conference this year will depart somewhat from custom in having
two parallel sessions: one descriptive/theoretical and one applied.
 The descriptive/theoretical sessions will consist of the customary
discussion of the papers on descriptive and theoretical linguistic topics.
The applied sessions will consist of presentations and workshops on
issues in the learning, teaching, and revitalization of the
indigenous languages of the northwest.

Contributors to the descriptive/theoretical sessions should submit
their manuscripts by June 15 for inclusion in the collected papers for
the conference. Registrants will receive the preprinted papers by mail
in late July. Late papers will be accommodated as conference time
permits, but the paper must be written out and copies made available
to other participants at the beginning of the meeting. A style sheet and
order form for the conference papers can be found at the 32nd ICSNL

Those wishing to schedule a workshop or presentation in the applied
sessions should contact:
