 Deadline for Submission of Abstracts: July 31, 1994

Keynote Speakers

 Professor Mamoru Saito (University of Connecticut)

Special Session: Contrastive Study of Japanese and Korean
This year the conference committee again encourages presentations
which take both languages into the domain of investigation and
will set aside special slots for such comparative research.

 This conference aims to provide a forum for presenting
research in Japanese and Korean linguistics, thereby facilitating
efforts to deepen our understanding of these two languages which
have striking typological similarities. Potential topics include, but
are not limited to: syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology,
pragmatics, historical linguistics, typology, psycholinguistics,
sociolinguistics, language acquisition, and discourse. Presentations
are 20 minutes long, and will be followed by a 10 minute
question/answer period.

 Abstract submissions should be sent to one of the addresses
below by July 31, 1994. The abstract should include:

 1. Seven (7) copies of a one-page abstract (no more than
500 words) with a title; Omit your name and affiliation from the
abstract. The one-page (500 word) limit should be strictly
observed; a second page may be used only for data and
citing references.

 2. A 3" by 5" card with the title of the paper, the name of
the author(s), the mailing address of the author, and the author(s)
affiliation, phone number and e-mail address. If your address,
