Michael George Clyne (1939-2010)
The study of pluricentric languages, to which Michael Clyne so greatly contributed, has developed in diverse directions, from structural to sociolinguistic and pragmatic analyses. The "International Working Group on Non-Dominant Varieties" was founded in 2010 to continue this part of the work of Michael. Our conferences are held in memory of his work, his invaluable contributions to sociolinguistics and in remembrance of him.
