Lynne Murphy" <104LYN[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]MUSE.ARTS.WITS.AC.ZA> Subject: mla lex & room hello all-- i'm about to turn off ads-l for 2 months as i'm off to the states where my e-mail access is not all that hot (if you can believe that). hope i'll see some of you at ncte, mla, and lsa. but, before i go, i have 2 queries re: the mla convention in chicago: (1) is the lexicography group having a session? if so, what day is it? (perhaps people there have received the pmla with the schedule in it-- i expect mine to turn up in january.) (2) does anyone need a roommate in a hotel in chicago? i've not reserved a room yet, but need to find someone to share expenses with. (i expect to have a friend with me for the last night only.) please respond to me directly, as i'll not be getting the list. thanks, lynne --------------------------------------------------------------------- M.
