Spring Meeting of the Southeastern Conference on Linguistics

Spring SECOL will be held April 6--8 (1PM Thursday until the end of a
lunchtime barbecue on Saturday) in Athens, at the Georgia Center for
Continuing Education. Early April is of course a beautiful time in Athens,
usually the peak of the azalea and dogwood season. The conference will
begin with an optional computer workshop at the Center (W. Kretzschmar) or a
seminar on accessing Linguistic Atlas materials at the Georgia archival
site (E. Johnson); the first paper session will begin in the middle of
the afternoon. There will be a plenary by John Algeo, and a special
session on Anthropological Linguistics chaired by Ben Blount, editor of
*Journal of Linguistic Anthropology*. We hope to arrange an antebellum
house tour at the conclusion of the meeting.

The deadline for arrival of Abstracts in DECEMBER 5. Send 6 copies of an
abstract not to exceed 300 words to Greta D. Little and Michael B.
Montgomery, SECOL, Linguistics Program, University of South Carolina,
Columbia, SC 29208. Abstracts should not contain the name of the author
(to facilitate anonymous judgment); on each abstract put the title at the
top of the page, and staple a card with your name, affiliation, address,
and paper title to one of the abstracts. Assume 20 minutes' delivery time
for the paper.

Lodging is available at the Center, at $45-$55/night. The conference
travel agent will be Gulliver's Travels (in Athens: 404-354-8747,
800-541-0807); flights are available direct to Athens (all via Charlotte
on USAir), or to Atlanta with a ground shuttle direct to the Center in
