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) 

All talks will take place in Pickard Hall 110.
