About UKLVC13

UKLVC is a biennial conference that showcases international research on language variation and change, sociolinguistics, and dialectology, as well as applications of these branches of linguistics to a variety of different fields. We seek to foster diversity in theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of language variation in all of its forms and across a wide range of linguistic and cultural contexts. 

About the University of Glasgow

The UKLVC13 conference will take place online, hosted by the University of Glasgow on Zoom. Language variation and change is at the centre of research in English Language and Linguistics at Glasgow, with academic staff having directed projects such as the Scottish Syntax Atlas (SCOSYA), Sounds of the City and the Scottish Corpus of Texts and Speech (SCOTS).
