- --------------------- SECOND 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.

 Keynote speakers: Beth Levin (Northwestern University)
 James Pustejovsky (Brandeis University)
 Michael Tanenhaus (University of Rochester)

 Deadline for Receipt of Abstracts: October 16, 1998

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

Abstracts are invited for 30-minute talks (with 10 additional minutes
for discussion). Issues of argument structure have proven to be of
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 following:

* Six anonymous copies of the abstract
* One 3"X5" card with name, affiliation, address, phone
	 number, e-mail and title of paper

Deadline for receipt of abstracts is October 16, 1998. Send abstracts

Abstracts received after the deadline will not be considered. Fax

submissions are available by request. An individual may submit at
most one single and one co-authored paper.

Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be notified in mid-December,

Presenters who wish to have their papers included in the conference
proceedings must submit a camera ready copy by May 15, 1999. 
Proceedings will be published by the Texas Linguistics Forum.
