Meeting Description:

We are delighted to announce that the 40th meeting of the West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics (WCCFL 40) will take place on the weekend of May 13-15, 2022. It will be hosted by the Department of Linguistics at Stanford University, the department that hosted WCCFL 1 in 1982. Please save the date!

The West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics, or WCCFL (pronounced /ˈwɪkfəl/) is an annual linguistics conference, usually held in the spring at a university in western North America. Research presented at WCCFL can focus on any theoretical or formal aspect of natural language analysis, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and discourse structure, and their interfaces.

A call for abstracts will be posted on Linguist List in autumn 2021.

The format of WCCFL 40 — hybrid vs. virtual — will be determined at a later date.
