ExAPP 2010


Experimental Approaches to Perception and Production of Language Variation (ExAPP2010) University of Groningen, 11-12 November 2010

The goal of ExAPP 2010 is to gather scholars employing experimental methods to investigate linguistic variation. Empirical approaches to the study of language variation and change can benefit largely from the accompaniment of systematic manipulation of variables in the research setting. The ExAPP2010 committee aims to offer a conference that covers aspects of variation on all linguistic levels, and the perception as well as the production thereof.

Some core topics of the conference include

  • Perception of variation
  • Production of variation
  • Social meaning of linguistic features
  • Language attitudes
  • (Mutual) intelligibility
  • Innovative methodologies
Plenary speakers for ExAPP 2010 are:

Raphael Berthele (Fribourg)
