Language Variation and Linguistic Theory
This research group is the result of a merger between two
others, Research in Theoretical
Linguistics and Phonetics,
Phonology, Variation. The merger came about as a
reflection of a current state of the art in linguistics: within
language variation and change there’s an increasing interest in
linguistic theory, while theoretical linguists are also becoming more
and more open to the idea of taking variation seriously, sometimes even
making variation the very backbone of their theory of language.
Focussing on this intersection, our sessions will be devoted to
presentations by scholars from within and outside the Department, as
well as to discussions of relevant scholarly publications and the
planning of research projects.
Our regular meeting slot is Thursday 12-1, usually in County South C89 (which is also called 'Meeting Room 7'). Follow the 'Events' link on the left for information about forthcoming talks.
Everyone with an interest in language variation and/or linguistic theory is welcome.
