Subject: Announcement for LINGUIST

 ******** CALL FOR PAPERS ********



The 27th annual meeting of the Child Language Research Forum will be
held on April 7-9, 1995, at Stanford University. The Organizing
Committee welcomes abstracts for papers and posters on any topic
within first language acquisition, from metrical studies of first
word production to sociolinguistic studies of conversational
fillers, from studies of adult input on spatial relations to
what determines children's choices of pronoun forms, or from the
development of scope relations in syntax to crosslinguistic studies
of modality.

Abstract submissions should include:

 Ten (10) copies of a ONE-PAGE, double-spaced abstract of the paper
or poster, preferably in 12-point font or type, with a title.
OMIT name and affiliation. (All reviewing is anonymous.)

 A 3" by 5" card with the title of the paper, the name(s) of the
author(s), affiliation, mailing address, and email address; please
also specify any necessary AV equipment. We can provide projectors
for slides or transparencies ONLY if we know what you will need.
Indicate whether you are submitting a paper or a poster. (The
Committee reserves the right to re-assign your submission.)

 A self-addressed, stamped postcard if you wish to be notified that
your abstract has been received.

Abstracts should be postmarked by January 10, 1995. PLEASE MAIL EARLY!
No late abstracts will be accepted.

Abstract Preparation Guidelines:

All research must be completed (ie. no promissory abstracts). No
papers already presented at other conferences will be accepted. Only
one paper per author or co-author will be accepted, although abstracts
for more than one paper may be submitted. Abstracts should contain: a
statement of the hypothesis, a brief account of the study performed,
data and results, and a summary of the conclusions reached.

Abstracts and any enquiries should be sent to:

Stanford University
Department of Linguistics
Building 460
Stanford, CA 94305-2150, USA

(Inquiries may also be made via telephone to 415 723-4284.)


We are also soliciting brief resumes of current research on child
language from all researchers, regardless of whether they plan to
attend the Forum, and regardless of whether they have submitted
abstracts for presentation. These resumes should not exceed 200 words;
they will be reproduced for distribution at the Forum. If you are
submitting an abstract, please send in a resume at the same time.
Resumes should also be postmarked by January 10, 1995.
