Meeting Description:

The 5th Workshop on Innovations in Cantonese Linguistics (WICL-5) will take place on 18-19 April 2020, to be hosted by The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A. In the interest of keeping everyone safe, the originally-planned on-site, one-day event has been switched to that of a synchronous webinar event, to be held on Saturday evening and Sunday morning of 18-19 April 2020, Eastern Daylight Time.

The WICL conference -- an event hosted every two years by different institutions in North America -- focuses on new advances in Cantonese Linguistics, including innovations in methodologies, tools, and/or computing software. New approaches and research on language variation within the Cantonese (or ''Yue'') subgroup of the Chinese language family, language contact phenomena, and new subfields and their interfaces are especially welcome.

Dates: Saturday evening & Sunday morning, EST, 18-19 April 2020
Place: To be hosted online via the Zoom webinar platform from The Ohio State University and elsewhere in Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A.
