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 in the series – the fifth Arabic Linguistics Forum – will now be held at the University of York from Wednesday 8th – Friday 10th November 2023.

Further details and the call for papers are now available.
