THE LINGUISTIC SOCIETY OF AMERICA
cordially invites you to become a member of the Society.
THE LINGUISTIC SOCIETY OF AMERICA was founded in 1924 for the advancement of the scientific study of language in all its aspects. Toward this end, it has held annual meetings for personal contracts and the reading of papers; it has established new media of publication for the fruits of linguistic research; it has organized the Linguistic Institute; it is constantly cooperating with other agencies interested in linguistic study. The high standing of the Society is shown by the names of its presidents, Hermann Collitz, Maurice Bloomfield, Carl D. Buck, Franz Boas, Charles H. Grandgent; and by its election to membership in the American Council of Learned Societies.
The annual dues are Five Dollars; membership always begins on January 1. Members receive, without additional charge, all the publications of the Society, including Language, which appears quarterly, and the Language Monographs, Language Dissertations, and Bulletins, which are issued at irregular intervals; members alone are elegible to present papers at the meetings and to publish in the several series. The first four volumes of the publications (1925-1928) are still obtainable; they are offered at a special price to new members in 1929.
Persons interested in membership in the Linguistic Society should address Prof. R. G. Kent, Secretary, Bennett Hall, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. Labor and correspondence may be saved by including with acceptance of this invitation the dues of the first year of membership; or if further information be desired, complimentary samples of the publications, with a price-list and other data, will on request be sent by the Secretary.
The Sixth Annual Meeting of the Linguistic Society of America will be held at Cleveland, Ohio, December 30, 1929, to January 1, 1930.

Purpose: THE LINGUISTIC INSTITUTE was founded to encourage research and study in linguistic science. It is ready to co-operate as far as possible with any scholar or group of scholars in any undertaking that seems likely to increase our knowledge of linguistics or to encourage the pursuit of it. A history of the Institute may be found in Bulletins No. 2 and No. 4 of the Linguistic Society of America, which may be obtained from Professor R. G. Kent, Secretary of the Society, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia; price, 10 and 25 cents respectively.
Research: The Institute is in a position to assist research projects which require conference between scholars. A large number of investigations have profited from the discussions, both formal and informal, which have occurred at former sessions, and this feature will be emphasized as much as possible. During the session of 1929 a Conference on a Linguistic Atlas of the United States and Canada was held under the auspices of the American Council of Learned Societies, and the Institute is ready to assist this and similar projects whenever possible. Sessions: The Linguistic Institute holds a session of six weeks' duration each summer. The third session will be held from July 7 to August 15, 1930, at the College of the City of New York, Convent Avenue and 139th Street, New York City.
Scholars who wish to carry on their own researches can find almost any books that may be required in the excellent libraries of the City, many of them in the library of the College. The Institute provides unique advantages in the way of discussion with scholars of similar interests.
