Linguistics Association of Great Britain

**COVID-19 Update - LAGB AGM 2020 at Ulster University CANCELLED**

We are sorry to have to announce that the 2020 Annual Meeting of the LAGB at Ulster University will be postponed until the autumn of 2021. We very much regret losing this opportunity to get together to exchange new ideas and to meet each other face-to-face, and we are sorry for work that you may already have put in to abstract writing.  

The Ulster University organisers are already looking forward to hosting you at a particularly splendid meeting in the autumn of 2021.  For now, the conference organisers and the entire LAGB committee all hope that you are coming up with ways of coping with the current upheavals, wherever you are, and finding strength in the wonderful community of linguists throughout the UK and all around the world.

The Linguistics Association of Great Britain (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.
