Conference: AFLA 21

Description: The Department of Linguistics at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa will host the 21st annual meeting of the Austronesian Formal Linguistics Association. The conference dates are May 23-25, 2014.

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:

Diane Massam (University of Toronto)
Kie Zuraw (University of California, Los Angeles)


The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM) is located in Honolulu, Hawaii and is easily accessible by Honolulu International Airport.
