Subject: Jobs: Korean and/or linguistic theory - Fall 1997 St. Louis

We have a last-minute need for a replacement instructor in St. Louis to
begin August 27, 1997. Qualified individuals interested in either the
Korean courses or the linguistic theory course or both should make contact

The primary position is a parttime lectureship in Korean language at
University of Missouri-St. Louis and Washington University, which are five
miles apart and have a consortium arrangement for East Asian studies. Two
courses per semester are scheduled, one at the first-year level and one at
the second-year level. Candidates should have a master's or PhD degree,
native or near native fluency in Korean and in English, and language
teaching experience. Contact Inge Goessl, Chair, Dept. Of Foreign
Languages and Literatures at UMSL: simgoesUMSLVMA.UMSL.EDU (314-516-6243;
fax 314-516-6237).

There also is an adjunct position available in Fall 1997 to teach
Principles of Linguistics. This course is offered by the Linguistic
Studies Program at Washington University for undergraduates and graduate
students in fields other than linguistics. It should provide a serious
introduction to contemporary syntax and a lesser emphasis on semantics and
phonology. The primary text is Chomsky's Universal Grammar by R. Cook
(Blackwell, 2nd edition 1996). Contact Adele Abrahamsen, Director,
Linguistic Studies Program at Washington University:
