The West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics  (WCCFL) is an annual linguistics conference normally held in the spring and hosted by an insititution in western North America. It focuses on the theoretical analyses of natural languages in the areas of phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. 

WCCFL 33 was hosted by Simon Fraser University at the Harbour Centre Campus in Vancouver, BC, on 27-29 March 2015. Kyle Johnson, Heather Goad, and Matt Wagers were plenary speakers. The abstract booklet, which includes the conference program, can be downloaded here.

This volume of SFU Working Papers in Linguistics includes papers from the poster session, and we extend our gratitude to the authors for contributing their work to our growing volume. 

Please note that the proceedings from the talk presentations will be published by Cascadilla Press.
