The Arabic Linguistics Forum fosters academic and scholarly exchange on the linguistics of the Arabic language family, for researchers from across Europe and the Middle East, and beyond. Previous conferences took place in Essex (2015), York (2016), SOAS (2018) and Leeds (2020). Future conferences will take place every other year, alternating with AIDA.

The Forum welcomes contributions from all areas of Arabic linguistics, including: phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, morphology, dialectology, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, historical linguistics, language acquisition, psycholinguistics and computational linguistics.

The next conference will take place in late 2023 (most likely November) and will be hosted at the Aga Khan University Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations in London.

More details will be available by the end of 2022, with a call for papers early in 2023.
