Call for Papers

Language use and its inherent variability are an important part of linguistics and a subject of study in all its branches. Across these branches, however, approaches and objectives differ, and various methods of investigation are employed accordingly. The ExAPP conference series presents an important opportunity to juxtapose, discuss, and relate the multitude of current approaches to experimental research on language use and variation.

After highly successful meetings in Groningen (2010) and Copenhagen (2013), the third installment of ExAPP will take place at the University of Vienna in September of 2016, calling together international researchers who employ experimental methods to study the perception and production of language variation. Topics for presentation extend to all levels of linguistic systems as well as to any aspect of variation with regard to the perception and production of language use.

Conference topics include (but are not limited to) experimental research on:

•              Perception of variation

•              Production of variation

•              Social meaning of linguistic features

•              Language attitudes

•              (Mutual) intelligibility

•              Innovative methodologies

We solicit abstracts for paper and poster presentations alike. Talks are allocated slots of 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for discussion. Posters will be displayed throughout the conference day, and there will be a dedicated poster session.

Abstracts for both kinds of presentations should adhere to a limit of max. 300 words (excluding references) and may be submitted using EasyAbstracts provided by LinguistList at http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/ExAPP2016


The deadline for abstract submission is January 31st, 2016.

 A publication of selected papers from ExAPP2016 is planned.
