Call for Papers
23rd Annual Meeting of the
Linguistic Association of the Southwest
October 21-23, 1994
Invited Speaker: Ian Hancock, University of Texas-Austin
Proposals for papers in any area of linguistics will be considered.
Submissions are particularly encouraged in the areas of the theme of the 1994
meeting: "Minority Languages and Contact Varieties". Papers by graduate
students are especially solicited and will be considered for the Helmut Esau
Prize, a $250 cash award made annually by LASSO. Presentation time will be
limited to twenty minutes plus ten minutes for discussion.
*The deadline for receipt of abstracts is June 15, 1994.* Abstracts must be no
longer than one page (approximately 250 words) and should summarize the main
points of the paper and explain relevant aspects of the data, methodology, and
argumentation employed; abstracts of accepted papers will be published exactly
as received in a booklet for distribution at the meeting. At the beginning of
your abstract place the paper title, and at the end of the abstract (or on a
separate page) repeat the title along with your name, affiliation, and mailing
address (and e-mail address if you have one).
It is preferred that abstracts be submitted by e-mail to:
huttar[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]sil.org
In the absence of e-mail, or if your abstract contains any special symbols,
send one hard copy (or diskette) of the abstract to:
S. I. L.
7500 W. Camp Wisdom Rd.
Dallas, TX 75236
