Now in its third year, the Formal Ways of Analyzing Variation (FWAV) conference has been a venue for research which pursues formal analyses of linguistic variation, in all domains of grammar (phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics). The purpose of FWAV is to bring researchers together in order to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms which underlie (and the relationship between) intra-speaker variability, language acquisition, and language change. In contrast with previous years (where FWAV was a one-day workshop integrated into a larger conference), this year’s FWAV3 will be a stand-alone, 2-day conference.
Invited Speaker: Cristina Schmitt, Michigan State University
