We ask that individual papers in these Proceedings should be referenced with a URL for this Proceedings page rather than for the specific document. For example,

Note that there is no overall page numbering system for the Proceedings as a whole: page numbering in each paper starts at 1.
Papers submitted for these Proceedings 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 the conference presentations. Papers submitted for these Proceedings were anonymously reviewed by at least two academic referees. In each case, at least one of the referees was not a member of the Academic Committee for the conference. Not all papers submitted for these Proceedings were accepted for publication. The review process for the Proceedings was separate from the review process for acceptance of abstracts for the actual conference presentations.
The official date of publication of these Proceedings is June 2, 2000.
