About the Conference Series

NWAV ASIA-PACIFIC endeavours to bring together research that is firmly
based on empirical data with an emphasis on the quantitative analysis of
variation and change. Its priorities are to promote and showcase research
on (1) the indigenous languages of the Asia-Pacific region, and (2)
restructured or contact varieties that have emerged in the Asia-Pacific
region. NWAV AP 3 particularly encourages submissions on the sign languages
of Asia and the Pacific.
   NWAV AP 3 welcomes submissions for papers and posters on all scientific
approaches to analyzing and interpreting language variation and change
across the Asia-Pacific region including: real-time/apparent-time language
change, dialect variation and change, speech communities, multilingualism,
urbanisation and migration, sociophonetics, style-shifting,
language/dialect contact, variation in minority languages, variation in
acquisition, perceptual dialectology, and other topics that enrich our
understandings of the region and its indigenous languages.
   At the first meeting of the conference, NWAV AP established a tradition
of showcasing the innovative descriptive, philological, historical and
socially informed research being conducted by emerging and established
scholars in some of the world's most fertile arenas of language and dialect
