We are pleased to announce that the 4th edition of the international Biennial Conference on the Diachrony of English (CBDA-4) will take place in Troyes, France, from July 6th to July 8th 2015, hosted by the Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne and organised in collaboration with the Université François-Rabelais (Tours) and Université de Picardie Jules Verne (Amiens).

The main objective of the conference is to provide linguists working on the history of English with an opportunity to present their work and a forum within which to discuss current issues in English diachronic linguistics.

The scientific programme of the conference is available as a pdf file.

The social programme can be consulted here.

Registrations are now open. When you register, you will need to specify which events you plan to attend, which will make things easier for the organising committee.
