About AFLA: AFLA is an organization which promotes the study of Austronesian languages from a formal perspective. Since the initial meeting in 1994, AFLA has served as a forum for the presentation of new research in all of the core areas of formal analysis, including (but not limited to) phonology, morphology, semantics, syntax, typology, and psycholinguistics. AFLA has a history of bringing together leading scholars, native speaker-linguists, and junior scholars in the formal study of Austronesian languages.
