Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the first Language Variation and Change in Australia (LVC-A) meeting, which will be held at La Trobe University Franklin Street Campus (in the Melbourne CBD) on July 26th, 2013.

This free event will bring together world-renowned scholars in the field of language variation and change. These researchers all take a quantitative approach to sociolinguistics to examine linguistic and social factors influencing variation in phonetic, morphosyntactic, discourse-pragmatic and lexical features across spoken and signed languages (including a number of English varieties, Australian Sign Language and Spanish).
