Event details

SS18 will once again be a large conference and we anticipate that more than 600 delegates will be attending.

The Sociolinguistics Symposia were begun in the 1970s by a group of sociolinguists who saw the need for a forum to discuss research findings and to debate theoretical and methodological issues concerning language in society. The symposium has since grown into a large, international conference, now attracting more than 600 participants.

The organising committee looks forward to welcoming delegates to SS18 at the University of Southampton, UK
