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

John Benjamins Publishing Company has invited the the three of us
(Geoffrey Horrocks, Brian Joseph, and Irene Philippaki-Warburton) to
edit a volume, to be entitled "Themes in Modern Greek Linguistics",
for its Current Issues in Linguistic Theory series. The aim of the
volume is to publish a select number of substantive papers (on the
order of 10 to 12 in all) that present results of the application of
recent advances in our understanding of any aspect of linguistic
theory to various issues in the synchronic or diachronic grammar of
Modern Greek.

We therefore invite submissions from all interested linguists. Three
copies of papers of not more than 30 double-spaced pages should be
sent to Dr. Geoffrey Horrocks (address below) by July 15, 1996.

Authors will be informed by November 1996 regarding the status of
their paper.

For further information, please contact one of the editors.
