Subject: Call for Papers: Panel on Telephone Calls

A panel is being organized for the 6th International Pragmatics Conference
to be held on 19 - 24 July 1998 in Reims, France. The panel is entitled
"Telephone Calls: Unity and Diversity of Conversational Structure Across
Languages and Cultures". 

The aim of this panel is to bring together researchers working on telephone
calls in different societies using conversational data from different
languages to present their findings, to compare and contrast them with those
of researchers working on other languages and in different cultures, and to
discuss any similarities and differences. Papers adopting a comparative
perspective are especially welcome. Anyone interested in offering a paper to
this panel is invited to write to either of the organizers, to whom queries
about further details of the conference can also be addressed.

Panel Organizers:
1. Theodossia-Soula Pavlidou, Department of Linguistics, Aristotle
University of Thessaloniki, Greece. (
2. K.K. Luke, Department of Linguistics, University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam,
Hong Kong. (
