Welcome to the Australian Linguistic Society website

The Australian Linguistic Society is the national organization for linguists and linguistics in Australia. Its primary goal is to further interest in and support for linguistics research and teaching in Australia.

The Society, established in 1967, publishes the Australian Journal of Linguistics, a journal of international standing, which includes articles from all areas of linguistics, although having a particular focus on linguistics carried out by Australian linguists or about Australian indigenous languages or Australian English.

ALS also holds an Annual Conference, and every few years runs the Australian Linguistics Institute.
