Meeting Description:

Parmi les champs de réflexions les plus caractéristiques de l'histoire de
l'activité grammaticale en France, on trouve le souci de déterminer, parmi
toutes les variantes, le « bon usage ». Cette notion de « bon usage »,
aujourd'hui chargée de connotations archaïques et élitistes, est souvent perçue
comme un ensemble de prescriptions normatives correspondant à un modèle
socioculturel. Si notre réflexion commence par la tradition française et surtout
par la tradition des remarqueurs nous voudrions situer les textes français en
nous interrogeant sur les manifestations de la tradition du « bon usage » dans
d'autres pays européens.

Le programme provisionnel et les résumés des communications sont à présent
disponibles sur le site web du colloque. Vous y trouverez également des
informations pratiques (logement, modalités d'accès) ainsi que le bulletin
d'inscription. Si vous souhaitez réserver une chambre à l'intérieur du collège
il est préférable de le faire le plus rapidement possible. Le bulletin
d'inscription est à retourner par courrier avant le 10 avril 2009 si vous
voulez profitez de tarifs réduits, ou au plus tard avant le 12 juin 2009.

The provisional conference programme and the abstracts of the papers
accepted are now available on the conference website. The website
also gives information about accommodation and a downloadable conference
booking form. If you would like to book accommodation in the College,
please do so as soon as possible. Please return the booking form by 10
April 2009 if you wish to take advantage of the reduced conference fee, or
by 12 June 2009 otherwise.
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $60,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
