The special issue of Linguistic Variation that I co-edited with Constantine Lignos and Laurel MacKenzie is now out! The theme of the issue is "The locus of linguistic variation." One of the papers in the issue is "The dynamics of variation in individuals" by myself, Laurel MacKenzie, and Dave Embick.
I'm pleased to announce that my paper "Persistence in phonological and morphological variation" is now available in issue 28.3 of Language Variation and Change. This paper is based on my 2014 dissertation.

I'm pleased to have been invited to Indiana University in Bloomington to give a talk in their Linguistics Consortium Colloquium, which this semester is built around the theme of Language Variation and Change.
I'm headed to Cornell University for LabPhon 15, where I'll be giving a poster on "Lexical specificity and temporal decay in intraspeaker priming of sociolinguistic variation." I'll also be attending the satellite workshop on Personality in Speech Perception and Production to give a talk titled "Empathy, flexibility, and conformity in a sound change in progress."
