Meeting Description:

Following four highly successful earlier conferences—Sheffield (2003), Ragusa (2006), Toronto (2009), and Leiden (2013)—the next Conference on Prescriptivism will be hosted in Park City, Utah by the BYU Linguistics and English Language Department, from 21 to 23 June 2017. The theme of this iteration of the conference confronts the question of value directly: Value(s) and Language Prescriptivism.

We invite papers on any aspect of prescriptivism, such as language planning, language ideology, prescriptivism in history, prescriptivism and pedagogy, prescriptivism and nationalism, mechanisms of prescriptivism, and prescriptivism within standardization.
