Meeting Description:

The aim of this international conference is to provide a forum for academic and scholarly exchange on the linguistics of the Arabic language family, for researchers from across Europe and the Middle East, and beyond. The Arabic Linguistics Forum welcomes the submission of abstracts in all areas of Arabic linguistics: phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, morphology, dialectology, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, historical linguistics, language acquisition, psycholinguistics, computational linguistics, and applied linguistics.

Call for Papers:

This year, the University of Leeds will hold a pre-Forum study-day on the Arabic dialects of the Arabian Peninsula, on June 30th, 2020. On this day, Marjin Van Putten (Leiden University) and Barry Haselwood (University of Leeds) will be in conversation on phonation (title TBC).

Abstracts are also invited for the pre-Forum workshop; however, they must consider Peninsular varieties only in all areas of Linguistics. It is possible to submit two abstracts both for the pre-Forum study-day and the conference. The deadline and guidelines for submission of abstracts are the same applied for the ALiF CFP (see below).
Abstracts for both full papers and posters should be written in English and should not exceed 500 words. In addition, references and/or figures may optionally be included, but should not exceed two pages of A4 (or US 'Letter'). Please submit your abstract in pdf format.

Your abstract must be anonymous. You will be asked to submit a version with your name and affiliation on it if your abstract is selected for presentation. Please make sure that you do not use your name in the filename for your abstract, and please erase any details which might identify you in the file that you submit. Please use one word from the title of your abstract as the filename.

Talks will be allotted 20 minutes for the presentation with 10 minutes for questions and answers.

The deadline for all submissions is January 12, 2020.

Abstracts must be submitted via EasyChair at:

Notification of abstract acceptance is issued by March 20, 2020.
