Lancaster University on 16-17th April 2014. The conference is hosted by the Department of Linguistics and English Language and Lancaster University Phonetics Lab.
The workshop follows on from the success of previous workshops, with a focus on any aspect of English in the linguistic north of the United Kingdom, as well as the Republic of Ireland. We welcome papers in, but not limited to, dialectology, sociolinguistics, dialect in literature, discourse analysis, historical linguistics, language contact with English, and any other area of interest to English in the north.
We are very pleased to welcome two plenary speakers:
Carmen Llamas, University of York
Warren Maguire, University of Edinburgh
We are delighted to acknowledge the Linguistics Association of Great Britain as a sponsor of NEW6.
