Editor for this issue: Martin Jacobsen <martylinguistlist.org>


Please keep your conference announcement as short as you can; LINGUIST will not post conference announcements which in our opinion are excessively long. Also, please remember that, once posted, your announcement will be permanently available at our website: http://www.linguistlist.org/issues/indices/Confs1997r.html For this reason, we discourage multiple submissions of the same conference announcement. Thank you for your cooperation.

Subject: 3rd Intl Conf on Maintenance and Loss of Minority Langs

THIRD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MAINTENANCE AND LOSS OF MINORITY
LANGUAGES

KONINGSHOF CONFERENCE CENTER, VELDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS
NOVEMBER 26 - NOVEMBER 27, 1998


PROGRAMME

The conference will consist of three sections. The first section
addresses the sociological and social-psychological explanatory
context in which language shift processes take place. The second
section deals with language attrition from a psycholinguistic
perspective, and the third is fully devoted to the building of an
integrated explanatory framework for processes of language shift and
loss. In memory of Willem Fase, one of the initiators of the First and
Second Conference on Maintenance and Loss of Minority Languages, who
died in 1997, a new forum called the Willem Fase Lecture has been set
up. This plenary lecture forum will be granted to a promising scholar,
to be selected from the abstracts submitted.
