Meeting Description:

3rd International Conference on “Experimental Approaches to the Perception and Production of Language Variation” - ExAPP III
Vienna, Austria, 21-24 September, 2016

Language use and its inherent variability are an important part of linguistics and a subject of study in all its branches. Across these branches, however, approaches and objectives differ, and various methods of investigation are employed accordingly. The ExAPP conference series presents an important opportunity to juxtapose, discuss, and relate the multitude of current approaches to experimental research on language use and variation.

After highly successful meetings in Groningen (2010) and Copenhagen (2013), the third installment of ExAPP will take place at the University of Vienna in September of 2016, calling together international researchers who employ experimental methods to study the perception and production of language variation. Topics for presentation extend to all levels of linguistic systems as well as to any aspect of variation with regard to the perception and production of language use.

The following plenary speakers have kindly accepted the invitation to ExAPP2016:
