Past Linguistic Evidence Conferences

The Linguistic Evidence conference series is a meeting place for linguists who wish to improve the empirical adequacy of linguistic theory and linguistic analysis. A central aim is to more closely integrate data-driven and theory-driven approaches to the study of language systems, language behaviour, and language functions. Interdisciplinary work in which linguistics cooperate with academics in adjacent fields is particularly welcome.
