			Announcing: ChiPhon '99 
			 'New Syntheses:
	Multidisciplinary Approaches to Basic Units of Speech'
	Friday, April 23, 1999, at the University of Chicago

	Presented by the Workshop on Theory and Data in Speech
		Research, in conjunction with CLS 35

			Invited Speakers: 
	John Ohala, University of California, Berkeley
	Joseph Perkell, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
*********************************************************************

In phonetic and phonological analyses, linguists define primitive
units to advance their understanding of linguistic structure. These
units have generally been used as starting points by studies of speech
processing. At the same time, alternative lines of research, such as
studies of the physiology and neurophysiology of speech production and
perception, contribute additional information to our understanding of
the mental representations of speech. This panel seeks to synthesize
findings from linguistics and other fields which investigate
linguistic behavior, to determine whether these findings can be used
as evidence for a unified theory of the units of speech processing.
We invite papers which address questions such as the following:

1) How do speech processing units mediate between universal and
language-specific information? Do they account for isolated forms and
connected speech phenomena equally well?

2) How closely do the primitive units assumed by linguists match those 
assumed by researchers in other fields? What is the source of the 
differences?

3) Are the units used to account for speech production equally
successful in accounting for speech perception?

4) How does evidence for linguistic primitives from speech and hearing
pathologies, speech perturbations, L1 and L2 acquisition,
psycholinguistics, and connectionist modeling, or other related
fields, contribute to the above questions?

Submission Information: Please submit ten copies of a one-page,
500-word, anonymous abstract for a twenty-minute paper (optionally,

	1. Your name
	2. Affiliation
	3. Address, phone number, and email address
	4. Title of paper
	5. An indication that the paper is intended for the ChiPhon
		panel

The abstract should be as specific as possible, and it should clearly
indicate the data covered, outline arguments presented, and include
any broader implications of the work. An individual may present at
most one single and one co-authored paper. Authors must submit a
camera-ready copy of the paper at the time of the conference in order
to be considered for publication. Only a selection of papers
presented at CLS 35 will be published.

Deadline for receipt of abstracts is February 1, 1999. Send abstracts
to:

	Chicago Linguistic Society
	1010 E. 59th Street

Message 2: Pragmatics/Extended Deadline

Date: Wed, 11 Nov 98 11:31:00 PST

Subject: Pragmatics/Extended Deadline



EXTENDED DEADLINE - DECEMBER 1, 1998:



 Call for Papers

 PRAGMA99

 International Pragmatics Conference on
 PRAGMATICS AND NEGOTIATION
 June 13-16, 1999
 Tel Aviv University and Hebrew University of Jerusalem
 Tel Aviv and Jerusalem
 Israel

The main theme of this conference is the pragmatics of negotiation,
interpreted in a very broad sense. Interlocutors engage in
negotiations about every aspect of their interaction - such as floor
access and topic selection, contextual assumptions, conversational
goals, and the (mis)interpretation and repair of their
messages. Topics such as cross-cultural and cross-gender
(mis)communications, conversational procedures in disputes and
collaborations, argumentation practices, and effects of assumptions
and goals on the negotiating strategies of interlocutors are of
special interest for this conference.

The conference will be interdisciplinary, bringing together
pragmaticists, linguists, philosophers, anthropologists, sociologists
and political scientists. We are soliciting papers on all issues
relevant to the theme of the conference, as well as papers in other
areas of pragmatics and dialogue analysis.

The conference will include plenary addresses, regular session
lectures, and organized panels around any of the relevant
topics. Among the plenary speakers: Elinor Ochs (UCLA), Itamar
Rabinovitch (Tel Aviv University), Emanual Schegloff (UCLA), Thomas
Schelling (University of Maryland), Deborah Schiffrin (Georgetown
University), Deborah Tannen (Georgetown University), Ruth Wodak
(University of Vienna).

Presentation of regular session lectures is 30 minutes long, with a
subsequent discussion of 10 minutes. Panels take the form of a series
of closely related lectures on a specific topic, which may or may not
be directly related to the special topic of the conference. They may
consist of one, two or three units of 120 minutes. Within each panel
unit a maximum of four 20-minute presentations are given
consecutively, followed by a minimum of 30 minutes of discussion
(either devoted entirely to an open discussion, or taken up in part by
comments by a discussant or discussants). Panels are composed of
contributions attracted by panel organizers, combined with
individually submitted papers when judged appropriate by the Program
Committee in consultation with the panel organizers. Typically,
written versions or extensive outlines of all panel contributions
should be available before the conference to facilitate discussion.


SUBMISSIONS
Abstracts for papers and panels should be submitted in the following
format:

1. For papers - five copies of an anonymous abstract (up to 300 words).

2. For panels - a preliminary proposal of one page, detailing title, area
of interest, name of organizer(s) and invited participants to be sent by
Sept. 30, 1998. Organizers of approved panels will then be invited to
submit a full set of abstracts, including: a. a brief description of the
topic area, b. a list of participants (with full details, see below), c.
abstracts by each of the participants by November 1, 1998.

3. In all cases, a page stating: a. title, b. audiovisual/computer
request, and c. for each author: I. Full name and affiliation; II. Current
address; III. E-mail address; IV. Fax number.


Deadline for submission of abstracts: Dec. 1, 1998. Abstracts may be sent
by hard copy, disk, or e-mail to Pragma99, Faculty of Humanities, Tel Aviv
University, Tel Aviv 69978, ISRAEL. E-mail: pragma99post.tau.ac.il
