This volume presents the proceedings of the twelfth West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Two features have been added to this volume. The papers are grouped by subfields into the areas of honology/morphology, syntax, and semantics, and two indexes, an author index and a subject index, have been added in the hope of increasing the usefulness of the volume.
