The project continues …

The Bridging the Unbridgeable project officially ended nearly five years ago, but almost all of us are presenting a paper at the next Prescriptivism Conference, held online (no fee!) at the University of Vigo from 23 – 25 September 2021. Here are the papers we will be presenting (listed in chronological order according to the conference programme):

Ingrid Tieken-Boon van Ostade, Breaking the who/whom rule: the final taboo?

Viktorija Kostadinova, 150 years of ideas about language: the aims of metalinguistic works in American English

Alyssa Severin & Carmen Ebner, “It is still all icky and American”: investigating British and Australian English speakers’ attitudes towards verb conversions

Carmen Ebner, “Your not my type”: effects of stigmatized linguistic variation in online dating

Theresa Heyd & Morana Lukač, The making of linguistic authority in the postdigital age

Morana Lukač & Adrian Stenton, What guides copy‐editors’ decisions? From grammatical to sociolinguistic determinants

And there will be many more interesting papers – not forgetting the plenaries! – besides. You will find the programme as well as the abstracts, here. And remember, no fees!
