Subject: One Week to December
Members of the American Dialect Society (and would-be's):
Please keep in mind that you have just a week to meet the deadline for
proposals for our annual meeting in Chicago, December 27-30. From the notice
in the January newsletter, p. 3, you will recall that program chair Walt
Wolfram is planning a special focus on dialect obsolescence; that there will
be a session with the American Name Society, where without having to be
schizophrenic you can present one paper simultaneously to both groups; and
that there will be other sessions suited for any appropriate topic. Also, you
can propose something for our one session with the Modern Language
Association, which will be meeting a few blocks away.
And then we hope to have a program with the Linguistic Society, January 4-7
in San Diego.
As it says in the newsletter, you are encouraged to make a proposal even if
you do not have a paper fully developed. You're welcome to send it by e-mail.
Anyhow, just keep in mind that we need it by Monday, March 20.
Season's greetings - Allan Metcalf AAllan[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]aol.com
