Meeting Description:

Following four highly successful earlier conferences—Sheffield (2003), Ragusa
(2006), Toronto (2009), and Leiden (2013)—the next Conference on
Prescriptivism will be hosted in Park City, Utah by the BYU Linguistics and
English Language Department, from 21 to 23 June 2017. The theme of this
iteration of the conference confronts the question of value directly: Value(s)
and Language Prescriptivism.

The value of prescriptivism has been contested for over a century, and the
legacy of those contests have left a challenge for studying prescriptivism:
how and how much should it be studied? Four previous conferences in this
series have demonstrated the value of studying prescriptivism, as scholars
from a variety of language traditions and approaches have garnered valuable
insights on prescriptivism and standardization in language.


Call for Papers:

Questions of value permeate the study of prescriptivism. Prescriptive
attitudes and practices abound in languages around the world, but what value
does prescriptivism bring to those languages and what value is there in
studying it? How do the values of those who study, promote, or oppose
prescriptivism affect the language and the discipline? We invite papers
addressing the value(s) of language prescriptivism, which may include:

- The value of studying prescriptivism
- The value of prescriptivism to society
- The value of specific mechanisms used for prescriptivism
- The values of those who promote or oppose prescriptivism
- Other ways in which value(s) and prescriptivism intersect

We also invite papers on any aspect of prescriptivism, such as language
planning, language ideology, prescriptivism in history, prescriptivism and
pedagogy, prescriptivism and nationalism, mechanisms of prescriptivism, and
prescriptivism within standardization.

For this conference, we will have two CFP deadlines: for those who need early
notification of acceptance, please submit abstracts by 15 Nov 2016. Early
notification will occur by 31 Dec 2016. The late notification deadline for
abstract submission is 1 March 2017, with notification by 15 April 2017.

Abstracts of 500 words or less (excluding references) should be submitted
through EasyAbs by 15 Nov 2016 (for early acceptance) and 1 March 2017 (for
late acceptance) through the following URL:
http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/preconf2016.
