Subject:  32st Annual Meeting of the Linguistic Association of the Southwest


	The 32st Annual Meeting of the Linguistic Association of the
Southwest will be hosted by the University of Texas-Pan American
(UTPA), located in the subtropical Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas
from Friday, October 17 to Sunday, October 19, 2003. This year's theme
is "Crossing Linguistic Borders."  (Papers in all areas of linguistics
will be accepted, as usual). The Plenary Speakers will be Joshua
A. Fishman, Professor Emeritus from Yeshiva University, General Editor
of the International Journal of the Sociology of Language, and author
of numerous works, who will speak on "Distancing and Interaction: The
Status Agenda in Corpus Planning" and Jos G.  Moreno de Alba, research
fellow of the Instituto de Investigaciones Filolgicas and professor at
Universidad Nacional Autnoma de Mxico, and author of numerous books on
Spanish in the Americas, whose topic is "El Atlas Lingüístico de México."
Peter Gingiss, from the University of Houston, will deliver the
Presidential Address.

The conference will be held on the campus of UTPA in the University
Library. Edinburg, in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, is central to
several areas of interest.  These include the resort areas of South
Padre Island, usually very nice in October, and Mexican border towns,
such as where Reynosa, shopping and restaurants abound. Monterrey,
Mexico is only three hours driving from Edinburg, for those interested
in more than the border region.  In addition, there are abundant
opportunities for hunting and fishing; ecotourism is also a big draw
as the LRGV hosts approximately 500 species of birds.  October is also
the month to view numerous butterflies in the Texas Butterfly Festival
in Mission (next door to Edinburg).  This area of the U.S. is among
the fastest growing suburban-metropolitan areas of the country.

Additional information on the conference itself, as well as on travel
and other local arrangements, will be provided in the August
newsletter. In the meantime, questions can be directed to Hugo
A. Mejas or Pamela L Anderson-Mejas, 2003 Conference Co-chairs, phone:
(956) 381-3445, e-mail: mejiash at panam.edu or Pamela L. Anderson-Mejas
at pla66f5 at panam.edu.

Abstracts for the conference may now be submitted.  Papers in any area
of linguistics are welcome, but papers on the conference theme
"Crossing Linguistic Borders" are encouraged. Program arrangements are
the responsibility of the LASSO Vice-President/President-Elect, Elly
van Gelderen. All proposals for papers, special sessions, panels, or
other program features should be submitted by e-mail at:
ellyvangelderen at asu.edu or regular Mail:

 	Student papers can be considered for the Helmut Esau Prize, a
$250 cash award made annually by LASSO for the best student paper (see
story, p.3).

	The abstract deadline is June 1, 2003.
