Meeting Description: The fourth annual Formal Ways of Analyzing Variation (FWAV4) is a two-day conference hosted by the University of York (UK). Previous conferences were held at the University of Iceland in 2013 and 2015 and the City University of New York.

We seek to connect research that pursues formal analyses of linguistic variation, in all domains of grammar (phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics), with a particular focus on the connection between models of grammar and intra-speaker variation, rather than more traditional micro-variation or sociolinguistics. The purpose of FWAV is to bring researchers together in order to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms which underlie (and the relationship between) intra-speaker variability, language acquisition, and language change.

Invited Speakers:

Nicole Holliday (Pomona College)
Anton Karl Ingason (University of Iceland)
Linguistic Subfield: General Linguistics
LL Issue: 28.772
