- ------------------------ CALL for PAPERS --------------------

 Announcing the 1999 Conference of the Texas Linguistics Society

 Perspectives on Argument Structure

 to be held at the University of Texas at Austin, March 5-7, 1999.

 Michael Tanenhaus (University of Rochester)

 Deadline for Receipt of Abstracts: October 16, 1998

- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

Abstracts are invited for 30-minute talks (with 10 additional minutes

long-standing interest within diverse subfields of linguistics. The
intent of this conference is to bring together researchers working on
argument structure from different perspectives. In keeping with this
idea, presentations that address argument structure from the perspective
of formal syntax or semantics are encouraged, as well as those that take
psycholinguistic, computational or other approaches.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

 * Theories of linking; relating argument structure to syntactic
 * Accounts of case assigment
 * Lexical conceptual semantics and argument structure
 * Computational implementation & models of argument structure or
 * Syntax/Semantic interface and language acquisition
 * Acquisition of argument structure
 * Language processing of argument structure, subcategorization or
 lexical/conceptual structure

Abstracts must be no more than on 8.5" by 11" page, single spaced and in
at least 12-point type (10-point for examples), with one-inch margin on
all sides. One additional page with references, diagrams and data (no
text) may be appended, if necessary. All submissions must include the

 * Six anonymous copies of the abstract
 * One 3"X5" card with name, affiliation, address, phone
