UKLVC

The 10th UK Language Variation and Change (UKLVC) conference will take place from  1- 3 September 2015, at the University of York. Confirmed keynote speakers are Paul KerswillGhada Khattab, Lesley Milroy, and Benedikt Szmrecsányi.

UKLVC is a biennial conference which provides a regular forum in the UK for the presentation and discussion of recent research in language variation & change, sociolinguistics, dialectology, and applications of these branches of linguistics to fields such as language pedagogy and forensic speech analysis.

Papers are usually presented by established scholars and also students, both from the UK and internationally. Theoretical and methodological contributions are diverse, and research focuses on all levels of linguistic structure (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, discourse, pragmatics) and a wide range of languages.

The call for papers was announced on 4 November 2014, with a deadline for submission of 13 February 2015.
