April 19, 2020
All Day


The 5th Workshop on Innovations in Cantonese Linguistics (WICL-5) will take place on Saturday, April 18 from 5:30-11:55pm and Sunday, April 19 from 9:00am-12:20pm as a synchronous web conference. This conference focuses on new advances in Cantonese Linguistics, including innovations in methodologies, tools, and/or computing software. New approaches and research on language variation within the Cantonese (or “Yue”) subgroup of the Chinese language family, language contact phenomena, and new subfields and their interfaces are especially welcome.

NOTE: WICL-5 was originally scheduled as a one-day event to be held on the second day of OSU’s Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures’ 1-1/2 day on-site celebration event, DEALL 50th Anniversary that, in the interest of health and safety, has now been cancelled.
