The Third International Conference on the Linguistics of Contemporary English (ICLCE3)
14/15-17 July 2009
Institute of English Studies Senate House University of London
The attention devoted to the linguistics of the English language has resulted in a broad body of work in diverse research traditions. The aim of the ICLCE conference is to encourage the cross-fertilisation of ideas between different frameworks and research traditions, all of which may address any aspect of the linguistics of contemporary English. The first and second ICLCE conferences were held in Edinburgh (2005) and Toulouse (2007) along the same lines. We aim for the London conference to build on the success of those events.
The main conference will be preceded on 14 July 2009 by a one-day symposium to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Survey of English Usage, founded by Randolph Quirk at UCL. The theme of this symposium will be 'Current Change in the English Verb Phrase'.
Plenary speakers at the main conference:
James Blevins (Cambridge) Bernd Kortmann (Freiburg) James M. Scobbie (Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh) Sali Tagliamonte (Toronto)

This conference is organized by the Linguistics Department, Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL) and the Survey of English Usage (SEU) at UCL in collaboration with the Institute of English Studies.
