Main content start

New Ways of Analyzing Variation (NWAV) 50 will take place October 13-15, 2022 (hybrid) at Stanford University. The conference theme is “What does variation mean?” in all its senses, including: 

  • How does the meaning of variation fit into the larger meaning system of language? 

  • How does variation fit into a broader semiotic system? 

  • What are the boundaries of variation as an object of study? 

  • What is the real-world significance of variation?

Plenary speakers will be Joseph C. Hill, William Labov, Barbra A. Meek, and Emma Moore. 

Abstract submissions will open mid-May and be due June 27, 2022.
