Meeting Description:

The Department of Linguistics at UT Arlington will host the 20th annual meeting of the Austronesian Formal Linguistics Association. The conference dates are May 17-19, 2013.

AFLA is an organization which promotes the study of Austronesian languages from a formal perspective. We will elicit talks on all aspects of formal linguistics (e.g. language acquisition, morphology, phonology, phonetics, semantics, syntax) of Austronesian languages. In addition to promoting the formal study of Austronesian languages, we especially encourage work by speaker-linguists and junior scholars.

Invited Speakers:

Sandra Chung (UC Santa Cruz)
Eric Potsdam (University of Florida)
Norvin Richards (MIT)

The deadline for abstract submission has been extended until February 1, 2013.

Abstracts are invited for 30 minute talks (20+10) or poster presentations on any aspect of formal linguistics (morphology, phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics) of any Austronesian language(s). Abstracts on experimental/psycholinguistic research of any Austronesian language(s) are also invited. Submission limitations are one singly-authored abstract and one jointly-authored abstract, or two jointly-authored abstracts per applicant.

Abstracts should be submitted as pdf files online, on the AFLA 20 submission website:
