Subject: English Linguistics at Manchester

Readers may like to look at a new web page describing research and
postgraduate work in English Language and Linguistics at the
University of Manchester:

As part of the reorganisation of our departmental website, two other
pages relevant to linguists have migrated down the directory tree.

A listing of forthcoming articles in the new C.U.P. journal _English
Language and Linguistics_ (first issue May 1997) can now be found at:

And the page for the 10th International Conference on English
Historical Linguistics (Manchester, 21-26 August 1998) is now at

Apologies to anyone who gets multiple copies of this note.
