LATEST: LAGB 2024 will be held at Newcastle University, 27th - 30th August 2024.

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.
