Call for Papers


24th Annual Meeting of the

Linguistic Association of the Southwest

October 6-8, 1995

New Mexico State University

Las Cruces, New Mexico

Invited Speaker: George Lakoff, University of California, Berkeley

Proposals for papers in any area of linguistics will be considered.

Submissions for the 1995 Las Cruces meeting are particularly encouraged in the

areas of "Language maintenance and shift" and "Language and computers." 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 for papers will be limited to twenty minutes plus ten

minutes for discussion.

**The deadline for receipt of abstracts is June 15, 1995.**

Notification of acceptance of papers will be sent out by August 1, 1995. Only

one abstract as single author and a second as co-author will be accepted from

any individual.

Abstracts must be no longer than one page (c. 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:


In the absence of e-mail, or if your abstract contains any special symbols,
