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 (8-10 November, with an associated thematic workshop on 7 November) and will be hosted in person at the Aga Khan University Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations in London.

More details including the call for papers will be available in early Spring 2023.
