Date: Sun, 30 Aug 1998 06:39:14 -0400 (EDT)
From: DAVID GIL <dgilUDel.Edu>
Subject: Call for Abstracts: 3rd Malay/Indonesian Linguistics Symposium


First Call for Abstracts

The Third

24-25 August 1999
Amsterdam, The Netherlands


Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are 
invited to submit a one-page abstract, by regular mail, 
email, or fax, to David Gil, at any of the following 

Department of Linguistics, 
Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology,
Inselstrasse 22, D-04103 Leipzig, Germany

fax: 49-341-9952119

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 May 1999


Early submission procedure:

Abstracts may be submitted right away, or at any time before 
the 15 May deadline.

Persons submitting their abstracts early will be notified 
immediately whether their paper has been accepted for 
presentation at the symposium, and, in case of acceptance, 
will immediately be sent an official letter of invitation.
(The early submission procedure is designed to make it easier 
for some participants to apply for funding and leave.) 


Papers to be presented at the symposium should be concerned 
with the Malay / Indonesian language in ANY of its varieties. 
In addition to the standardized versions of Bahasa Melayu and 
Bahasa Indonesia, papers are particularly welcome dealing 
with non-canonical varieties such as Peranakan Malay, Bazaar 
Malay, and regional dialects of Malay and Indonesian. Papers 
may be in any of the subfields of linguistics, and may 
represent variegated approaches and diverse theoretical 
persuasions. Presentations at the symposium will be delivered 
in English.
