New Ways of Analyzing Variation

New Ways of Analyzing Variation

New Ways of Analyzing Variation (NWAV) is an annual academic conference in sociolinguistics. NWAV attracts researchers and students conducting linguistic scientific investigations into the interrelationship between language and society, including how patterns of language variation are shaped by and continually shape societal institutions, social and interpersonal relationships, and individual and group identities. In 2011, the 40th New Ways of Analyzing Variation (NWAV 40) conference celebrated the special anniversary at its birthplace, Georgetown University. NWAV 41 will take place at Indiana University, Bloomington on October 25-28th, 2012.
