[apologies for multiple postings]

19-22 February, 2020, National University of Singapore

The 6th meeting of New Ways of Analyzing Variation - Asia Pacific invites submissions for paper and poster presentations, as well as proposals for special sessions and workshops. The conference will take place from the 19th to 22nd of February, 2020, at the National University of Singapore.

NWAV-AP is a unique venue for sharing research on language variation and change in an Asian context. We are happy to consider submissions of work relating to the Asia-Pacific region, as well as Asia more broadly, and Asian diaspora communities elsewhere in the world. The theme of this year’s conference is “Asia on the move”; we welcome papers that speak to this theme, including studies on language variation and change in relation to transnational migration, urbanization and development, language contact, and language revitalization. As in previous years, NWAV-AP particularly aims to highlight new variationist research on the indigenous languages and
contact varieties of Asia.

The plenary speakers for NWAV-AP 6 will be Alan Yu (University of Chicago), Qing Zhang (University of Arizona), and Kazuko Matsumoto (University of Tokyo).
