 THE HENRY SWEET SOCIETY FOR THE HISTORY OF LINGUISTIC IDEAS
 FIFTEENTH ANNUAL COLLOQUIUM: AMSTERDAM, 16TH - 19TH SEPTEMBER 1998

 Second Circular

 Date and venue
The colloquium is scheduled to begin with registration at 1 p.m. on
Wednesday 16 September, and to finish with breakfast on Saturday 19
September. There will be associated events on Wednesday and Thursday
evenings. Registration and papers will take place in Amsterdam University's
Doelenzaal and its Oudemanhuispoort facility. Both locations are in the
centre of Amsterdam and can be easily reached by public transport. There
will be a special bus on Thursday and Friday mornings for participants from
Hotel Casa 400. Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, has the largest
historical inner city in Europe and the beautiful canals, monumental
buildings, museums, world famous art galleries, open air markets and
shopping streets can easily be explored on foot, should you have time
before or after the colloquium.

 Accommodation and travel

A number of rooms have been booked for colloquium participants at Hotel
Casa 400. A list of low budget or more expensive hotels will be provided
on request. 
 Amsterdam is easily accessible by air, rail and road. There is a
direct rail connection to Amsterdam from Schiphol International Airport
located about 10 miles from the city centre. The city of Amsterdam
discourages its citizens from using cars, which means that there is no free
parking either at the hotel or in the vicinity. Detailed travel
arrangements will be sent to those who have made bookings.

 Keynote speaker

We are delighted to announce that Reinier Salverda, Professor of Dutch at
University College London, has agreed to be our keynote speaker. His topic
will be "Dutch linguists around 1900: a critical reappraisal".

 A book of abstracts will be made available to participants at the
beginning of the Colloquium.
Speakers who wish to make any adjustments to their abstracts should do so
before 31 May.

Subject: Teaching Linguistics (Grammar)

*** Call for Papers *** *** Call for Papers ***

 "Teaching Linguistics" Symposium 
 on 
 
 TEACHING GRAMMAR

In conjunction with the Twenty-Second Annual Conference on 
the Teaching of Foreign Languages and Literatures.

Youngstown State University
Youngstown, Ohio,
October 24, 1998

Plenary Speaker: 

* Robert DeKeyser, University of Pittsburgh, Linguistics Dept. 

Dr. DeKeyser will speak on "focus on form"

Proposals on topics related to the teaching of grammar in 
first, second and foreign languages are welcomed. College and 
university faculty, high school teachers, and graduate 
students are invited to submit proposals.

Possible areas of focus might include, but are not limited 
to: pedagogical grammars, history of grammatical teaching, 
normatism/prescriptivism, pros and cons of formal 
instruction, and all aspects of grammatical teaching, such as 
methods, social aspects, audiences, situations of teaching 
(L1, L2, FL), goals and objectives, etc. Special attention 
will be given to papers dealing with the position and role of 
grammatical instruction within the curriculum.

* All disciplinary approaches are welcome, such as language 
arts teaching; second language acquisition: theory, research 
and practice; pedagogical approaches and classroom 
strategies; techniques and materials; innovations in media 
technology; testing and assessment; ethnographic studies. 
This is not, however, a symposium on Universal Grammar. 

* Abstracts: Presentations should be 30 minutes long, 
including time for questions. Send three copies of a one-
page, double spaced abstract to the Symposium Committee 
(address below) by June 1, 1998. E-mail submissions (ASCII 
only, no attachments) are OK. Include contact information on 
a cover sheet attached to the abstract. The abstract should 
contain no information that identifies the presenter. 
Notification will be mailed no later than July 1, 1998.

* Registration: All participants, including presenters, are 
required to register to the Conference, however, a lower fee 
for the Symposium day alone will be available. Registration 
materials will be mailed in early August 1998. All accepted 
presenters will receive the conference registration mailings. 
Those interested in attending, but not presenting need only 
request to be put on the mailing list.

Graduate students needing crash space or with financial 
problems should mention this fact in the cover sheet.

* The Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages and 
Literatures will feature two plenary speakers: Helena Curtain 
(U. of Wisconsin) who will speak on FLES and David D. Herren 
(Middlebury College) who will speak on CALL. Besides the 
plenary speakers the conference will feature over thirty 
presentations and workshops on various aspects of teaching 
Foreign Languages and Literature.

* Abstracts and requests for information about the Teaching 
Grammar symposium should be sent to:
