Meeting Description:
	
The success of recent endeavours such as the meetings on the theme of
the Semantics of Under-represented Languages in the Americas (SULA at
the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, April 2001) shows that
there is considerable interest amongst semanticists, and indeed
amongst linguists generally, in the problems which arise in
confronting semantic theories with data from less-studied languages
(Matthewson 2001). A central problem in this research programme is
that, in most cases, the linguist will not be a native speaker of the
language. We intend that this meeting will concentrate on the
conceptual and methodological problems of studying semantics under
these conditions.
