Headed home from New Ways of Analyzing Variation (NWAV) 44: Intersections in Toronto. So many good talks, it was hard to choose. My talk "Exploring task and gender effects on stance-taking in a collaborative conversational corpus" went well. The atmosphere is so collegial -- I really feel at home with the NWAV crowd. And to top it off, the venue (Hart House) and the U Toronto campus are beautiful, and the weather was so nice -- I saw all the interesting old architecture and parks I could've asked for, just walking around.
