NWLC 2013

Conference URL:

The Northwest Linguistics Conference is a graduate student conference held on a rotating annual basis, between the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, the University of Victoria, and the University of Washington. The aim of the NWLC is to provide a venue for graduate students to present their work in a friendly atmosphere, and to connect with fellow graduate student researchers from other universities, both locally and internationally.

This year aims to have two special themed sessions:

(1) Modality and Temporality This session broadly welcomes any papers in semantics concerned with issues of modality and temporal interactions.

Plenary Speaker: Claire Turner (UBC)

(2) Information-Based Approaches to Phonology: This session welcomes any papers that take an information/statistical/probabalistic approach to phonological phenomenon.

Plenary Speaker: Kathleen Currie Hall (UBC)
