This volume of WPLC is a continuation of the most recent history of the journal. WPLC has been tied to the North West Linguistics Conference in varying degrees as a venue for the proceedings of the conference. For the past three years we have been working to put WPLC out as an annual publication from our department.
Two years ago we published a volume of a collection of papers by both graduate and undergraduate students. This gives the graduate students an opportunity to get feedback and publish works in progress, and the undergraduate students the chance to participate in the academic publishing process.
This volume, although smaller, continues to provide that same opportunity. Last year we enjoyed reading and publishing papers from across the continent for the NWLC. For this volume we reached out once again to linguists across the continent and collected papers from undergraduate and graduate students.
