THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND UNDERGRADUATE ESSAY PRIZE IN LINGUISTICS
-------------------------------------------------------------------

The University of Maryland Department of Linguistics is pleased to
announce the 1998 University of Maryland Undergraduate Essay Prize in
Linguistics, an international competition.

The prize of $1000 will be awarded for the best undergraduate student
essay on a topic in linguistics, and the winning essay will be
published in the 1999 University of Maryland Working Papers in
Linguistics.

Submissions may be in the areas of computational linguistics, formal
semantics, language acquisition, language change, lexical semantics,
neurolinguistics, phonology, psycholinguistics, and formal syntax. 

The deadline for submissions is November 3, 1998.

Essay competition rules are as follows:

 Eligibility. 

 Applicants must at the time of submission be enrolled at least half
 time in an undergraduate program of study leading to a bachelor's
 degree or equivalent, and must not already possess any degree in
 linguistics. Essays should have been written within the previous or
 current academic year, and must represent the original work of
 the applicant. Previously published essays will not be considered
 for the award. Current and former students of the University of 
 Maryland, College Park are ineligible.

 Deadline. 

 Applicants must submit three (3) copies of the essay to the
 address listed below, to be RECEIVED no later than 
 November 3, 1998. Late submissions will be returned unopened.

 Length and format. 

 Essays must be submitted in English, typed or word-processed in no
 smaller than 10-point font, single-sided, double-spaced, and on white
 paper, with at least 1-inch margins on all sides. Applicants should
 use single-spaced endnotes rather than footnotes, and follow style
 guidelines of either the Modern Language Association (MLA) or the 
 American Psychological Association (APA). Essays must be no longer 
 than twenty pages, excluding bibliography, including at most two 
 pages of endnotes. Essays not conforming to these instructions 
 will not be considered. 

 The applicant's name must not be included on the essay. Instead,
 include a cover sheet listing the title of the essay, applicant's
 name, address, telephone number, e-mail address (if available), school
 and program attending, year in the program, and the topic area or 
 areas of the essay (taken from the list above).

Judging.

 All essays will be judged anonymously by the Faculty
 in Linguistics at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Award.
 The Essay Prize of $1000 will be awarded in January, 1999, and 
 the winning essay included in the 1999 Maryland Working Papers in
 Linguistics. 

 The Department reserves the right not to award the prize in a given
