    Hello everyone, let us first take this opportunity to remind all students that the deadline for next year's SCIL conference is coming up in a month and a half and also to encourage you to send in abstracts. Below you'll find another call for papers. The other reason that we're posting this message is to see who might be interested in hosting SCIL V in 1993. After hosting the first three conferences, the folks at MIT thought it was time to take a break and to let someone else take over. So in 1992, it's OSU's turn. Ideally, we should have a different place hosting SCIL every year (with the proceedings centrally published through MIT). So, if there are students at departments in North America who would like to host SCIL in 1993, they should contact us sometime before the next business meeting at the conference in April. --Andreas Kathol (for the organizing committee) please post STUDENT CONFERENCE IN LINGUISTICS SCIL IV CALL FOR PAPERS The Student Linguistic Association at the Ohio State University is pleased to announce that it will host the fourth annual Student Conference in Linguistics, to be held April 4-5, 1992. Any student who will not have a Ph.D. by April 1992 is welcome to submit a paper in any area of linguistic study, written in any theoretical framework. All papers accepted will be published in the MIT Working Papers in Linguistics. Speakers will be allowed 30 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for questions. To submit an abstract, send five copies of an anonymous one-page proposal by January 1, 1992 Abstracts should be accompanied by a single 3 x 5 card with: 1. title of the paper 2. the author's name 3. the author's affiliation 4. address and phone number 5. e-mail address Send inquiries or entries to: SCIL IV Department of Linguistics 204 Cunz Hall 1841 Millikin Rd.
