Association for Linguistic Typology Junior Award 1999

The Association for Linguistic Typology proposes to make a Junior Award for
the best piece of typological research embodied in a dissertation or thesis
or equivalent submitted between 1 January 1997 and 31 December 1998 for an
MA or PhD or equivalent degree. The award will consist of payment of travel
and per diem expenses and registration fee to attend ALT-3, to be held in
Amsterdam at the end of August 1999, and presentation of the awardee's work
as a plenary lecture at that meeting.

Those wishing to be considered for this award are asked to submit FIVE
copies of their thesis or dissertation to the President of ALT at the
address given below, to arrive no later than Monday, 1 March 1999. Work
submitted will not be returned.

Work submitted will be evaluated by a jury consisting of the following:

Matthew Dryer
Gilbert Lazard
Edith Moravcsik
Frans Plank
Masayoshi Shibatani

The jury may seek expert advice from other scholars, e.g. if a piece of
work is written in a language that members of the jury cannot read.

Please address all queries, and send work for submission, to the ALT
President at the following address:
