In the interest of keeping everyone safe during the current coronavirus outbreak, the originally-planned on-site 5th Workshop on Innovations in Cantonese Linguistics (WICL-5) will be replaced with an online event 18-19 April 2020 ( Eastern Standard Time). It will be held via Zoom Webinar, a popular videoconferencing platform. Please check the official workshop website for details, updates, etc. The organizers can be reached at wicl5.2020gmail.com.
This workshop, which is the 5th installment of a biennial event, focuses on new advances in Cantonese Linguistics, including innovations in methodologies, tools, and/or computing software. New approaches and research on language variation within the Cantonese (or “Yue”) subgroup of the Chinese language family, language contact phenomena, and new subfields and their interfaces are especially welcome.
WICL-5 is supported by the following OSU sponsors:
