Date: Sun, 22 Oct 1995 23:10:37 EST From: Beth Lee Simon Subject: ADS-L session at M/MLA Dear ADS Members and Friends, The ADS session of the M/MLA meets on Friday, November 3, from 12:30 to 2:00 PM in Pavilion G. I encourage anyone who is going to the conference to attend the session. The panel participants, Tim Frazer, Tom Murray, Charles Boberg, and William Labov, are each presenting intriguing data and insights pertaining not only to "Midland" dialect in particular, but also to questions about changes at various levels of American English. The American Name Society meets directly after the ADS session, from 2:15 to 3:45 in Pavilion Suite 3. Don Lance made the following suggestion to me, and I'd like to propose it to the group, that we get together for a late afternoon something, or for dinner. If you have a preference, please contact me. I'll suggest a time and place at the end of Friday's session. (Don actually suggested lunch or dinner, but will y'all be there by, say, 10 am?) Best, Beth Simon, tin-eared ADS Midwest Regional Secretary Assistant Professor, English and Linguistics Indiana University - Purdue University at Fort Wayne simon[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]cvax.ipfw.indiana 219-424-8834
