Subject:  Call:  Chinese Dialectology conference
	Papers on Chinese dialectology are now being accepted for the
next meeting of the The Yuen Ren Society.
	As in past years, the meeting will be held in conjunction with
the American Oriental Society annual meeting, some time between 22 and
26 March, 1997 in Miami, Florida.
	The loose theme this year is Chinese dialect comparison -
although we will consider papers on any Chinese dialectological topic
as long as it is fully supported by data.
	The Yuen Ren Society for the Promotion of Chinese Dialect
Fieldwork is dedicated to the study of diverse varieties of spoken
Hann Chinese, with strong emphasis on descriptive fieldwork.  It is
the only academic organization of its kind in the world.  The Society
was founded in 1990 at the University of Washington and is named after
Yuen Ren Chao, a pioneer in descriptive Chinese linguistics.  The
Society's meetings are an occasional forum for distributing and
discussing fresh dialect data.  YRS meetings are typically small and
rather cozy, and speakers are allowed at least 30 minutes per
presentation.  Our format is more flexible than most of other regular
Chinese linguistics conferences, and we have a much narrower focus -
we insist that all presentations be supported by abundant data.  Each
year a number of our presentations are usually devoted to reports on
dialects that are poorly known.
	The deadline for submitting either finished papers or readable
drafts, including (most important) a representative sample of data, is
31 November, 1996.
	(This year, submissions to the Society's journal, the
Treasury, will be handled separately from the regular meeting - watch
for announcements.  The deadline is 31 October.)
	As always, all submissions, to both the Treasury and the YRS
meetings are reviewed anonymously.  We will be happy to send you a
list of suggestions and our style sheet.  The Society's Web page is at
