The “International Working Group on Non-Dominant Varieties of Pluricentric Languages” (WGNDV) is delighted to organise the "9th international conference on Pluricentric Languages and their Non-Dominant Varieties". This conference will be hosted by the Austrian German Association (Graz, Austria). In the light of health concerns and the restrictions in international travelling due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference will have to be held online.
This conference builds on the results of previous eight conferences and workshops held in Graz (2011), Salamanca (2012), Guilford (2014), Graz (2015), Münster (2017), Nitra (2018), Graz (2019) and Stockholm (2019) as can be seen in the eight published volumes (see website), explored the field, defined the scientific terminology associated with the descriptions of pluricentricity, described the current situation of non-dominant standards in languages of four continents and discussed sociological, educational and cultural implications of managing language standard systems.
The main objective of the 9th WGNDV-conference is to further deepen the already available knowledge about pluricentric languages and to welcome scholars from all over the world to provide an insight into the linguistic situation and the specific characteristics of as many pluricentric languages and their varieties as possible.
Deadline for submissions: June 15 2021
