Meeting Description: Following four highly successful earlier conferences—Sheffield (2003), Ragusa (2006), Toronto (2009), and Leiden (2013)—the next Conference on Prescriptivism will be hosted in Park City, Utah by the BYU Linguistics and English Language Department, from 21 to 23 June 2017. The theme of this iteration of the conference confronts the question of value directly: Value(s) and Language Prescriptivism.

The value of prescriptivism has been contested for over a century, and the legacy of those contests have left a challenge for studying prescriptivism: how and how much should it be studied? Four previous conferences in this series have demonstrated the value of studying prescriptivism, as scholars from a variety of language traditions and approaches have garnered valuable insights on prescriptivism and standardization in language.
