Early registration (before September 16) is required to request some services, including ASL interpreting and advanced T-shirt ordering. Printed program booklets will only be available through pre-order during the early registration period (at a cost of $5). PDF programs will be available online and for download. (In an effort to save paper, we are only printing programs for those who wish to have them.)

Exciting NWAV48 merchandise is available for pre-order with your registration, and a limited amount of merchandise will be available on-site at the conference.

The registration process requires that all registrants provide a snail mail address.

Registration for NWAV48 in 2019 entitles delegates to a 2020 subscription to Language Variation and Change (LVC volume 32). For an additional $20 registration cost, registrants can also receive print copies of the journal. LVC is the only journal dedicated exclusively to the study of linguistic variation and the capacity to deal with systematic and inherent variation in synchronic and diachronic linguistics. The journal is published tri-annually, in March, July, and October. Delegates receiving a print subscription in addition to online access should expect to receive their first copy of LVC in Spring 2020.
