Meeting Description:

NWAV-AP is a unique venue for sharing research on language variation and change in an Asian context. We are happy to consider submissions of work relating to the Asia-Pacific region, as well as Asia more broadly, and Asian diaspora communities elsewhere in the world. The theme of this year’s conference is “Asia on the move”; we welcome papers that speak to this theme, including studies on language variation and change in relation to transnational migration, urbanization and development, language contact, and language revitalization. As in previous years, NWAV-AP particularly aims to highlight new variationist research on the indigenous languages and contact varieties of Asia.
