Meeting Description: New Ways of Analysing Variation Asia-Pacific 3
Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, 1-3 May 2014

NWAV ASIA-PACIFIC endeavours to bring together research that is firmly based on empirical data with an emphasis on the quantitative analysis of variation and change. Its priorities are to promote and showcase research on (1) the indigenous languages of the Asia-Pacific region, and (2) restructured or contact varieties that have emerged in the Asia-Pacific region. NWAV AP 3 particularly encourages submissions on the sign languages of Asia and the Pacific.

NWAV AP 3 will be held 1-3 May 2014, at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. The conference is hosted by the School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies and the Deaf Studies Research Unit of Victoria University of Wellington (Te Whare Wānanga o te Ūpoko o te Ika a Māui).

Plenary Speakers (confirmed):

Dr Michael Dunn (Max-Planck Institut, Nijmegen)
Dr Lisa Lim (University of Hong Kong)
Dr Adam Schembri (La Trobe University)

The earlybird registration for NWAV-AP3 is 2 March.
