Please keep your conference announcement as short as you can; LINGUIST will not post conference announcements which in our opinion are excessively long. Also, please remember that, once posted, your announcement will be permanently available at our website: http://www.linguistlist.org/issues/indices/Confs1997r.html For this reason, we discourage multiple submissions of the same conference announcement. Thank you for your cooperation.
