As you know, with great regret we have had to postpone the 2020 Annual Meeting of the LAGB at Ulster University until the autumn of 2021.  In the meantime, we have been collaborating on an initiative with other linguistics assocations around the world, led by the Brazilian association Abralin, to invite linguists doing particularly exciting research to offer a series of talks on a whole range of topics across the field. The talks will run until the end of July, and can be watched live, with the possibility of asking questions via chat, but they are all also available to watch in catch-up. Please set aside a bit of time to check out the incredible schedule (and don't forget to look through talks you may have missed since Noam Chomsky and David Crystal kicked off the series in May).

The Linguistics Association of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (LAGB) is the leading professional association for academic linguists in Great Britain, and welcomes new members. Its scope includes all branches of linguistics – formal or functional, theoretical or descriptive, synchronic or diachronic, social or psychological (or neither), concerned with one language or many. Its members individually favour a wide range of different theories of language structure, and all theoretical persuasions are welcome.

The LAGB’s main activities are:

  • Publication of the Journal of Linguistics, a highly respected international journal.
  • An annual conference, which includes two invited overseas speakers of renown, a workshop, a language tutorial, a summer school and various specialist sessions, as well as papers reflecting a wide range of views and approaches.
  • Representation of linguistics and linguists in matters such as research funding and quality assessment.
  • Bridging the gap between academic linguistics and language education through the activities of the LAGB Education Committee. This committee organizes specialist Linguistics at School sessions at LAGB meetings, and maintains a glossary of grammatical terminology for schools.
  • Maintenance of discussion forums for discussion of general issues.
