Please note that this conference follows a related one on cognitive
linguistics, sponsored by the ICLA (International Cognitive Linguistics
Association), July 16-21, 1995. We expect that many will want to avail
themselves of the unique opportunity to update their knowledge of what is going
on in these closely related approaches to the study of language by attending
both conferences; and such mutual participation can be expected to enhance the
value of both events.

Finally, I have appended to this message an updated version of the original
conference announcement from last year.
