A workshop and conference on Role and Reference Grammar will be held at
the LSA Summer Institute at the University of Illinois, July 23-25, 1999.
 The workshop is for linguists already working in RRG as well as those
wishing to become better acquainted with the theory.  There will be two
parts to the workshop.  First, there will be a series of introductory
lectures on the basics of RRG for those not yet acquainted with the
theory.  Second, there will be a series of working sessions for linguists
already familiar with RRG; some of the sessions will be focussed on
particular topics, e.g. argument structure, the semantics of complex
sentences, the psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic implications of RRG,
and some will be devoted to specific languages or families, e.g. Korean,
Japanese, Austronesian.

There will be a one-day conference at which current work in RRG will be
presented.  Talks will be 30 minutes long.  Please send three copies of
your abstract (2 pages maximum), which should include your name, e-mail
address and regular address, by March 1, 1999 to the following address:
