Manchester linguistics had a great representation at the 38th annual meeting of New Ways of Analyzing Variation, held this year in Ottawa, 22-25 October.  NWAVers were treated to talks by:  Erik Schleef (with Edinburgh colleagues Miriam Meyerhoff and Lynn Clark) on Sociolinguistics and immigration: linguistic variation among Scottish-born and Polish-born adolescents in Edinburgh; Elke Philburn on Analyzing patterns of glottalization in German stops; and Maciej Baranowski on On the role of social factors in the loss of phonemic distinctions.
