The South Central American Dialect Society invites abstracts for individual presentations (15-20 minutes) for their allied session at the 69th annual conference of the South Central Modern Language Association to be held in San Antonio, TX, November 8-10, 2012. While we welcome papers on any approach to the study of the English language in North America, given the location of the conference this year, we are particularly interested in papers that study other languages or dialects of other languages and how those languages influence or are influenced by American English.

500-word abstracts should include presenter contact information and paper title. The deadline to submit abstracts to the session chair, Dr. Thomas W. Reynolds, Jr. (reynoldst@nsula.edu) is March 30, 2012.
