The Department of Linguistics, University of Toronto, is organizing a conference on Canadian English in the Global Context in honour of Jack Chambers. The conference aims to address the following questions: What are the characteristics of Canadian English that distinguish it from other English dialects? How does Canadian English vary across the nation? What accounts for this variation? What changes are occurring in Canadian English right now? How has Canadian English been influenced by contact with other languages such as Aboriginal languages, French, and immigrant languages? What effect does American English have on Canadian speech? What is the role of Canadian English in the context of World English?
