Meeting Description:

The Graduate School Empirical and Applied Linguistics at the University of
Münster, Germany, invites junior researchers to participate in a joint
conference on ''Dynamics - Variation - System'' from 2 to 4 June 2017. The
conference is primarily geared at doctoral students, post‐doctoral
researchers, and master's students of linguistics and related subjects.

With  all  its  linguistic  and  non-‐linguistic  sign  systems,  the  system 
''language''  is  subject  to  constant  change. While laypersons often regard
language change processes as ''language decay'', linguists see language  as  a
 dynamic  system,  in  which  members  of  a  language  community  constantly 
negotiate  variation on multiple levels.

The  conference  aims  to  facilitate  theory-­driven  discussion  of  current
 concepts  as  well  as exchange  about the levels on which processes of
variation can be observed in the dynamic system that is ''language''  and 
about  the  processes  and  phenomena  that  are  being  described  in 
current  research  projects in the fields of empirical and applied
linguistics.

The  following  topics  and  research  areas  may  be  relevant  in  this 
regard:  

- Variation  linguistics
- Perceptual linguistics
- Cognitive linguistics
- Interactional linguistics
- Corpus linguistics
- Language change
- Language acquisition
- Dynamic language systems
- Grammatical theories
