Subject:  Ref. SALA XIX 2nd Call


We have been receiving a lot of mails regarding our posting on the list
about SALA XIX- 2nd Call. It seems that there is some confusion regarding
the fees quoted for registration etc. Many people have got figures with a
'3' appended to it, making a fee of 148 pounds, 3148 pounds. Could you
send a mail clarifying this and that all figures are in sterling pound ?

Thank-you,
Kalika

                            CHANGE OF DATE


                  THE SYNTAX OF SEMITIC LANGUAGES
    The date for conference on the syntax of Semitic Languages, to be held
at the University of Southern California, has been changed. The conference
will be held on the following dates:

                             May 1-3, 1998

and not as previously announced.  There are no other changes.  The
ammended call for papers follows:

           CALL FOR PAPERS: THE SYNTAX OF SEMITIC LANGUAGES

           The Department of Linguistics at the University of Southern
           California invites abstracts for a conference on the syntax of
           Semitic Languages to be held at USC May 1-3, 1998.


During the past decade, there has emerged a significant body of work
concerning the syntax and the syntax/semantics interface of Semitic
languages.  We feel that the time is now right for scholars who have been
working independently on the syntax of these languages to come together on
a regular basis, so as to share with each other the results of their
research.  In order to pursue this goal, the Department of Linguistics at
USC will be hosting a conference on this topic, in the hope that it will
be the first of many.  Participants will be selected on the basis of
refereed anonymous abstracts, to be judged by a selection committee.  It
is our intention to have 18 talks in all, each 40 minutes long with an
additional 15 minutes for discussion.


Please send 10 copies of an anonymous abstract, at most 2-pages long
(including examples and references).  Please enclose a 3x5 card with
submission stating name of paper, name of author, affiliation and address,
including e-mail address, phone number and fax number, where available.
The name of the author SHOULD NOT appear on the abstract.  Submissions by
e-mail or by fax will not be accepted.  Abstracts should be postmarked NO
LATER THAN JANUARY 10, 1998, and sent to:

	HAGIT BORER
	DEPARTMENT OF LINGUISTICS
	UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
	LOS ANGELES, CA 90089-1693
                   USA

Please direct all inquiries to the address above, or to:

CARLETON UNIVERSITY

                         Ph.D. in Cognitive Science

      Carleton University now offers a PhD in Cognitive Science. The
programme admitted its first students in Sept. 1997. The next
admission
will be in Spring 1998 for Sept. 1998 registration. The programme is
Canada's first dedicated, fully structured Ph.D. programme in
Cognitive
Science. Further information can be obtained from the Director, Andrew
Brook, abrook at ccs.carleton.ca, or at the regular mail address given at
the end or from our Web site:
    http://superior.carleton.ca/~jlogan/Grad_Cog_Sci.html
      The programme is housed in the Institute of Interdisciplinary
Studies. The programme involves 26 faculty from the five core
disciplines
of Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Psychology, Linguistics,
Philosophy, and Neuroscience, 17 from Carleton, the other nine from
the
University of Ottawa, McGill University, and the federal
Communications
Research Centre.
      It is possible to enter the programme with an honours Bachelor's
degree as well as with a Master's degree. Students with training in
any
of the core disciplines or a related discipline or disciplines are
invited to apply. The programme involves dedicated core courses,
courses
from contributing departments, a highly innovative `methodology
rotation'
in which students spend a term in a laboratory or other research
facility
in three different cognitive disciplines, and a dissertation. The
methodology rotation serves as the comprehensive examination. The
dissertation committee is interdisciplinary.
      Financial assistance in the form of Scholarships and Teaching
Assistantships is available to all qualified students. All students
are
provided with office space, a fully networded computer, and so on.
About
five new students will be admitted each year in the early years of the
programme.
      The programme has been assessed by an international panel of
cognitive scientists from England, Canada and the United States. All
rated it in the highest category.
      Interested students are invited to contact us at the address
