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]
