This will be the ninth in a series of biennial conferences which showcase research in language variation and sociolinguistics in the United Kingdom. We also welcome international participants and discussion should not necessarily be confined to research on communities within the British Isles. Presentations may focus on any level of language use and should promote understanding of theory or methods used in variationist work.

We are delighted to announce that the plenary speakers will be: Jen Hay (University of Canterbury, NZ); Julia Snell (King's College London, UK); Peter Trudgill (University of Adger, Norway).
