acceptable. Ph.D. degree holders in a field other than linguistics and
linguists with less than a completed doctorate should NOT apply.
(2) Travel is required between January 27 and 31, 1998. Reasonable
travel expenses (within the United States) will be covered.

(4) Excellent writing skills, attention to detail, and an intimate
knowledge of the English language.

An honorarium of $1000 plus travel expenses will be paid for
participation in this project. Additional follow-up consulting work
after the meeting is likely, depending on the individuals performance
and usefulness to the project.

Please send a brief email message summarizing your qualifications
related to the four requirements above to You should
also attach or include your resume. Fax is acceptable, but please do not
leave voicemail messages.
