Papers from these proceedings should be referenced as:
Author(s)-of-paper. 2003. Title-of-paper. In Peter Collins & Mengistu Amberber (eds), Proceedings of the 2002 Conference of the Australian Linguistic Society. http://www.als.asn.au.
Note that there is no overall page numbering system for the proceedings as a whole: page numbering begins at 1 in each paper.
Not all papers presented at the conference were accepted for publication. These papers were anonymously peer-reviewed by at least two academic referees to DEST standards. Papers were required to meet the standard for publication in academic journals such as the Australian Journal of Linguistics, subject to a word limit commensurate with the length of conference presentations. The review process for the proceedings was separate from the review process for acceptance of abstracts for the actual conference presentations.
The official year of publication of these proceedings is 2003.
