Meeting Description:

Attitudes to Prescriptivism is the theme of a pre-conference workshop that will take place on Tuesday 11 June 2013. The workshop is organised by the project Bridging the Unbridgeable: Linguists, Prescriptivists and the General Public and part of the conference Prescription and Tradition in Language, which takes place on 12-14 June at Leiden University, The Netherlands.

The workshop will feature papers that investigate language users’ attitudes towards prescriptivism and other normative actions, primarily from the point of view of the recipients of such actions, such as the general public, institutions and specific professional groups (linguists, journalists, educators, bloggers, etc.). The focus will mainly be on English, but discussions of other languages will also be welcome.

Organising Committee:

Robin Straaijer, Carmen Ebner, Morana Lukač and Viktorija Kostadinova
