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), Leeds (2020) and York (2023). Future conferences will run 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.

We are delighted to announce that the next conference in the series – the sixth Arabic Linguistics Forum – will be hosted in 2025 by the University of Vienna (provisional dates: Wednesday 3rd – Friday 5th September 2025).
