Language use and its inherent variability are an important part of
linguistics and a subject of study in all its branches. Across these
branches, however, approaches and objectives differ, and various methods
of investigation are employed accordingly. The Experimental Approaches
to Perception and Production of Language Variation conference series
(ExAPP) presents an important opportunity to juxtapose, discuss, and
relate the multitude of current experimental approaches to language
After highly successful meetings in Groningen (2010), Copenhagen (2013)
and Vienna (2016), the fourth installment of ExAPP will take place at
the University of Münster on 26-28 September 2019, inviting
international researchers employing experimental methods to study the
perception and production of language variation. Topics for presentation
extend to all levels of linguistic systems as well as to any aspect of
variation with regard to the perception and production of language use.
Conference topics include (but are not limited to) experimental research
- Perception of variation - Production of variation - Social meaning of
linguistic features - Language attitudes - (Mutual) intelligibility -
We solicit abstracts for paper and poster presentations alike. Talks are
allocated slots of 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for discussion.
Posters will be displayed throughout the conference day, and there will
be a dedicated poster session. The following invited speakers have
confirmed their participation: Alice Foucart, Manuela Lanwermeyer &
Jürgen-Erich Schmidt, Emma Moore, Martijn Wieling.
Abstracts for both kinds of presentations should adhere to a limit of
max. 300 words (excluding references) and may be submitted using
