Meeting Description: The next UK Language Variation and Change conference will take place at the University of Sheffield.

We also welcome international participants and discussion should not necessarily be confined to research on communities within the British Isles. Presentations will focus on any level of language use and should promote understanding of theory or methods used in variationist work.
