Confs: Mid-American Linguistics (Correction)

Editor for this issue: Anita Huang <>

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: For this reason, we discourage multiple submissions of the same conference announcement. Thank you for your cooperation.
