and revitalization efforts of the speech communities of aboriginal Canada,
the US, and Latin America. 


Topics may include (but are not limited to) the following:

*	Classification of indigenous languages

In keeping with the ILA tradition, we also invite individual papers or
posters on other areas of linguistics. Each presentation should last no more
than twenty-five minutes, including time for questions and discussion.
Proposals also may be submitted for three-hour workshops for teachers on
topics related to the teaching of language, literacy and/or linguistics.
