AFLA is an organization which promotes the study of Austronesian languages from a formal perspective. Since the initial meeting in 1994, AFLA has served as a forum for the presentation of new research in all of the core areas of formal linguistics, including (but not limited to) phonetics, phonology, morphology, semantics, syntax, typology, and psycholinguistics. AFLA has a history of bringing together leading scholars, native speaker-linguists, and junior scholars in the formal study of Austronesian languages.

The 24th annual meeting of AFLA (“Pacific Northwest AFLA”) is being co-hosted by the University of Washington Department of Linguistics (Seattle, Washington) and Reed College (Portland, Oregon), and will be held at the University of Washington April 7-9, 2017.

In addition to plenary talks by the above invited speakers, AFLA 24 will include a one-day workshop on Comparative Formosan Linguistics.

This website is currently under construction. Additional information about AFLA 24 will be be added as the conference date approaches.
