15-17 SEPTEMBER 2022

The 9th Biennial International Conference on the Linguistics of Contemporary English (BICLCE), which was originally going to be held in September 2021, will take place between 15 and 17 September 2022 at the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia). While an in-person conference is envisaged and preferred, it will migrate online if necessary due to external circumstances.

Over the last two decades, the BICLCE conference has become a platform for various theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of English and its varieties. Previous conferences were held in Edinburgh (2005), Toulouse (2007), London (2009), Osnabrück (2011), Austin TX (2013), Madison WI (2015), Vigo (2017) and Bamberg (2019). With a focus on the holistic presentation of current linguistic research, we look forward to accommodating papers, presentations and workshops on the syntax, morphology, phonology, sociolinguistics, semantics and pragmatics of contemporary English.
