About AFLA

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.
