Meeting Description:

The 7th Northern Englishes Workshop (NEW7) will be held at the University of Edinburgh on Thursday 14th and Friday 15th of April, 2016. Like previous workshops, NEW7 will focus on research on the linguistic 'North', specifically Northern England (from the English-Scottish border to as far south as you can justify), but will exclude research dealing with Scotland and Ireland (unless this concerns relations with Northern England). All aspects of the study of Northern English (dialectological, structural, historical, sociolinguistic, perceptual, etc.) are welcome. NEW7 will include a special half day workshop on the linguistic analysis of Northern English dialect literature.
