The Penn Working Papers in Linguistics (PWPL) are published by the Penn Graduate Linguistics Society (or GradLingS), the organization of linguistics graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania. The series includes papers from conferences, including the Penn Linguistics Conference (PLC) and New Ways of Analyzing Variation (NWAV), as well as volumes of working papers by linguists affiliated with the Penn Linguistics Department.
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:
- Proceedings of the annual Penn Linguistics Conference (PLC) conference
- Selected Papers from the New Ways of Analyzing Variation (NWAV) conference
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.
