Meeting Description:

LSRL is the premier conference on Romance Linguistics, distinguished by its selectivity and its focus on high quality theoretical and empirical studies of all varieties of Romance languages and their Latin origins. In celebrating its 50th anniversary, our conference branches out from its strong, theoretical roots and lays the groundwork for novel research programs and data sharing practices that continue to move the field forward.
