Message 1: NWAVE 24 publication

Date: Wed, 22 May 1996 17:13:58 EDT
From: Miriam Meyerhoff <>
Subject: NWAVE 24 publication
Last year, the 24th meeting of NWAVE was held at the University of
Pennsylvania, and the Penn Linguistics Club took this opportunity to put
together a selection of papers from NWAVE 24. These have been published as
part of the UPenn Working Papers in Linguistics series. We are now pleased
to announce the availability of:

_(N)WAVES and MEANS: A selection of papers from NWAVE 24. University of
Pennsylvania Working Papers in Linguistics_ 3, 1. pp276.

The papers are a small, but we hope representative, selection of the themes
of the conference. It includes several papers looking at syntactic
variation (within formal and functional frameworks), papers which look at
the gap between perception and production in unstable (changing or L2)
sound systems, a group of papers dealing with speakers' positioning of
selves within social space by choosing one of several speech varieties or
linguistic markers available to them, and papers in social
dialectology. The full Table of Contents follows.

Copies of (N)WAVES and MEANS can be ordered from the UPenn Linguistics Club
for $12 each. Please make out checks to "UPenn Linguistics Club" and send
