The LVC group is centred on research in variationist sociolinguistics and overlapping subfields (e.g. dialectology, historical linguistics, language in society). Meetings typically consist of presentations from members, visiting scholars, and guest speakers; work in progress is encouraged! From time to time we read and discuss a recent paper, host a software workshop, or talk about a noteworthy line of research. Anyone with an interest in variationist research is welcome at our meetings.
