There will be no registration available at the venue. We have reached capacity for the conference and if you have not already registered, you will be unable to do so.


Registration for NWAV43 in 2014 entitles delegates to a 2015 subscription to Language Variation and Change (LVC volume 27). LVC is the only journal dedicated exclusively to the study of linguistic variation and the capacity to deal with systematic and inherent variation in synchronic and diachronic linguistics. The journal is published tri-annually, in March, July, and October. Delegates should expect to receive their first copy of LVC in Spring 2015. The subscription is optional for student attendees.

Please help us plan for your arrival by registering early.
