Meeting Description:

The aim of the Conference is to bring together scholars working on
geo-historical variation in English. To this end, invited lectures and
papers are organized in such a way that change in the development of
varieties may be discussed from different perspectives simultaneously:
not only diachronic and diatopic, but also diastratic (that is, how
variation in time and place was in fact also influenced by the social
milieu of speakers/writers and their interlocutors). Methodological
issues are also expected to be highlighted and may include those
developed for the study of historical vernaculars other than
English. Scientific Committee: Michael Benskin, Markku Filppula,
Margaret Laing, Anneli Meurman-Solin, Keith Williamson, Maurizio
Gotti, Richard Dury and Marina Dossena.

Keynote speakers: Roger Lass; Michael Benskin
