University of Pennsylvania Working Papers in Linguistics

Article Title



The University of Pennsylvania Working Papers in Linguistics (PWPL) is an occasional series published by the Penn Linguistics Club. The series has included volumes of previously unpublished work, or work in progress, by linguists with an ongoing affiliation with the Department, as well as volumes of papers from NWAV and the Penn Linguistics Colloquium.

This volume contains selected papers from the 36th Penn Linguistics Colloquium, held from March 23rd-25th, 2012 in Philadelphia, PA at the University of Pennsylvania.

This volume also contains four papers that were presented at the 35th Penn Linguistics Colloquium, but were accidentally omitted from PWPL volume 18.1 due to editor error. Those papers are:
- Cook, Toni. "Explaining the Final Vowel Mismatch in Zulu Reduplication"
- Sun, Jisung. "The Derivational Nature of External Possession"
- Takahashi, Masahiko. "Adjunction, Phases, and Complex Predicates in Japanese"
- Yoon, Junghyoe and Yoshihisa Kitagawa. "Case Drop from Fragment Answers in Korean"

Thanks go to the editorial board, in alphabetical order: Hezekiah Akiva Bacovcin, Sunghye Cho, Claire Crawford, Aaron Ecay, Sabrya Fisher, Aaron Freeman, Lauren Friedman, Josef Fruehwald, Amy Goodwin Davies, Guðrún Björg Gylfadóttir, Anton Karl Ingason, Soohyun Kwon, Marielle Lerner, Hilary Prichard, Einar Freyr Sigurðsson, Elizabeth Sneller, and Robert Wilder.

Since Vol. 14.2, PWPL has been an internet-only publication. Since Vol. 13.2, PWPL has been published both in print and online gratis via ScholarlyCommons@Penn. Due to the large number of hits these online papers have received, and the time and expense of managing a back catalog of PWPL volumes, the editorial committee decided in 2008 to cease print publication in favor of wider-scale free online dissemination. Please continue citing PWPL papers or issues as you would a print journal article, though you may also provide the URL of the manuscript. An example is below:

Atanassov, Dimka, Florian Schwarz, and John C. Trueswell. 2013. On the Processing of "might". U. Penn Working Papers in Linguistics 19.1: Proceedings of PLC 36, ed. K. Shwayder, 1-10. http://repository.upenn.edu/pwpl/vol19/iss1/2

Ultimately, the entire back catalog will be digitized and available on ScholarlyCommons@Penn.

Publication in the University of Pennsylvania Working Papers in Linguistics (PWPL) does not preclude submission of papers elsewhere; copyright is retained by the author(s) of individual papers.
