We cordially invite you to participate in the 34th Colloquium 
of Linguistics which will take place at the Johannes Gutenberg-
Universitaet Mainz, Faculty of Applied Linguistics and Cultural 
Studies in Germersheim, from September 7 to September 10, 1999. 
The motto of this year's conference will be "Linguistics on the 
Way into the New Millennium". Continuing the tradition of the 
colloquium, there will be no restrictions regarding the choice 
of topics. The conference languages are English, German, and 
French. Presentations should not exceed 30 minutes which includes 
10 minutes of discussion. The deadline for abstracts is May 31, 
1999. A volume of abstracts will be available at the conference. 
The proceedings with the full papers will be published after the 
conference with Peter Lang-Verlag.

In a break with tradition, this year's conference program will 
be supplemented by a number of tutorials. Each tutorial comprises 
three hours and is intended to give a concise introduction to a 
specific field for audiences with a different focus of research.

We are particularly happy to offer you a bus excursion to the
old city of Heidelberg with a guided tour through the castle
on Thursday, September 9. On the way, we will stop in Speyer, 
whose Cathedral (Kaiserdom) is part of the UNESCO's world 
cultural heritage.

Please do not hesitate to bring this announcement to the
attention of interested colleagues. More information can be
found on our website at http://www.fask.uni-mainz.de/lk/
