Symposium, to be held in Cologne, Germany, from August 26-28, 2010.

LESLLA (Low Educated Second Language and Literacy Acquisition in Adults) is an
international forum of researchers who share an interest in research into the
development of second language skills by adult immigrants with little or no
schooling in the home country, low levels of literacy skills in the native
language, and limited proficiency in the language of the new country.

This is the second call for papers for the 6th Annual LESLLA Meeting taking
place in Cologne, Germany from August 26-28, 2010.

Please send your paper proposals related to practice work and research in the
field of low-educated second language and literacy acquisition in adults via
email to christiane.schoenebergeruni-koeln.de or visit our conference homepage
for further information: http://leslla.philfak.uni-koeln.de

The deadline for paper submissions is March 31, 2010.
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. 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.
