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.
