Date: Wed, 31 May 1995 16:28:56 -0400 From: Terry Pratt Subject: Call for papers: Atlantic Provinces Linguistic Association CALL FOR PAPERS: ATLANTIC PROVINCES LINGUISTIC ASSOCIATION ANNUAL MEETING CHARLOTTETOWN, PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND NOVEMBER 10-11, 1995 Papers on any topic in linguistics are welcome. However, the theme for the conference is "Making Linguistics Accessible," chosen in accordance with the current widespread perception that universities and their disciplines must be more accountable than ever before for the public dollars that they spend. It is hoped that most papers will allude to this theme in a way appropriate to their content, and that some will address it directly. Papers are 20 minutes with an additional 10 minutes for discussion. The featured speaker is Katherine Barber, editor-in-chief of the forthcoming Canadian Oxford Dictionary. ABSTRACTS (100 WORDS) DUE BY AUGUST 15, 1995 TWO COPIES, DOUBLE-SPACED. Abstracts and enquiries to Terry Pratt, UPEI, Charlottetown, PEI, Canada, C1A 4P3. Tel (902) 566-0677.
