Below please find the call for papers for the Dictionary Society of
North America’s 21st Biennial Conference in Barbados. The (extended)
deadline is fast approaching, but the organizer, Jason Siegel, informs
me that if an ADS member wants to submit something and is worried
about the time, you can e-mail him directly (clexp at cavehill.uwi.edu,

case-by-case basis.
