University of Pennsylvania Working Papers in Linguistics

The University of Pennsylvania Working Papers in Linguistics (PWPL) are published by the Penn Graduate Linguistics Society, the organization of graduate students in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania. We began online publication with volume 13.2 (2007) and are now a free-access online publication only. Volumes through 14.1 (2008) are currently being digitized. In the meantime, please contact the editors for assistance if you need access to a paper that is not yet online. Our ISSN number is 1524-9549.

PWPL publishes two volumes per year:

In addition, we have published an occasional volume of working papers written by students and faculty in the department.

All copyright remains with the authors of the individual papers.
