Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

New Ways of Analyzing Variation returns to its birthplace – Georgetown University! This special anniversary conference, hosted by the Georgetown University Linguistics Department, will take place October 27-30, 2011.

All sociolinguists are interested in language variation. Some of us are counting and some of us are not, but all of us count. NWAV 40 aims to celebrate the quantitative, qualitative and eclectic approaches to the study of language variation and change that have given us so much insight over the decades, and to encourage further research from a wide range of perspectives, thereby further deepening our understanding of how language reflects and shapes personal identities, interpersonal interactions, group memberships, and social orders.

The NWAV40 registration site is now open.

Please register, make registration payments, and sign up for workshops at:


Pre-registration will run through September 30th (ending at 11.59pm, September 30th). Following this, registration fees will be subject to an additional $30 late registration fee.

We look forward to seeing you at Georgetown University in October!
