Following the fourth conference on prescriptivism, which was held here at Leiden and co-organised by the Bridging the Unbridgeable project, the next one will be held at Park City, Utah, organised by Don Chapman from Brigham Young University.
The theme for the conference will be “Value(s) of Language Prescriptivism” and papers on any aspect of prescriptivism are invited. So SAVE THE DATE: 21-23 June 2017, and further details will be announced soon.
The book of the previous conference will be out by then. Find more information on the Multilingual Matters website.
Ingrid, Are the papers from the previous conferences available on-line?
No, sorry Adrian. But the book will be out soon: we’re in the final stages of editing. It will be published by Multilingual Matters: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?K=9781783096503.
This is fantastic news. Don Chapman was my thesis advisor, and the conference is within driving distance for me. I’m excited to attend!
