Welcome to WCCFL 40!
The 40th meeting of the West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics (WCCFL 40) will take place virtually on the weekend of May 13-15, 2022. It will be hosted by the Department of Linguistics at Stanford University, the department that hosted WCCFL 1 in 1982.
The West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics, or WCCFL (pronounced /ˈwɪkfəl/), is an annual linguistics conference, usually held in the spring at a university in western North America. Research presented at WCCFL can focus on any theoretical or formal aspect of natural language analysis, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, and their interfaces.
WCCFL 40 will feature parallel, synchronous talk sessions, but no poster sessions. Sessions will take place on Pacific Daylight Time (PDT).
• Line Mikkelsen (Berkeley)
• Juliet Stanton (NYU)
• Guillaume Thomas (Toronto)
WCCFL 40 will feature a special session on Focus, Prosody and Ellipsis.
Abstracts are due on Friday, December 17, 2021. See the Call for Papers for more details.
Registration information will be available in late Winter 2022.
