From: "Heidi E. Hamilton" <>
Subject: discourse in old age
I'm putting together a symposium on the topic of "Discourse in Old 
Age" for the Georgetown Linguistics Society conference DISCOURSE AS 
MOSAIC to be held October 11-13, 1996 on the Georgetown University 
campus in Washington, DC. I have invited several speakers, but would 
like to hear from anyone working on naturally-occurring discourse with 
this population who would be interested in being part of 
our symposium. Please contact me to indicate an interest by March 1 
and I'll get back to you with specifics. Thanks.. Heidi Hamilton
