University of Pennsylvania Working Papers in Linguistics

 

The University of Pennsylvania Working Papers in Linguistics (PWPL) are published by the Penn Graduate Linguistics Society, the organization of linguistics graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania.

PWPL publishes two volumes per year:

  • Proceedings of the annual Penn Linguistics Conference (PLC)
  • Selected Papers from New Ways of Analyzing Variation (NWAV)

In addition, we publish an occasional volume of working papers written by students and faculty in the department.
