Nordic Association of Linguists

The Nordic Association of Linguists

NAL

The Nordic Association of Linguists (NAL) is a major forum for linguists working in a Nordic country and linguists elsewhere working on a Nordic language. Two series of international conferences are organized under the auspices of NAL: The Scandinavian Conference of Linguistics and the International Conference on Nordic and General Linguistics, the latter series traditionally with an emphasis on Nordic languages.

In addition, the Association publishes the Nordic Journal of Linguistic (NJL, Cambridge University Press) which covers all branches of linguistics but gives preference to contributions of general and methodological interest and studies on Nordic languages. Normally one of the issues of NJL every year is a theme issue dedicated to one aspect of linguistics.

Members of the Association as well as others interested in linguistic research carried out in the Nordic countries are kindly asked to use Nordlingnet, the NAL discussion forum at http://mailman.uib.no/listinfo/nordlingnet.

Current fees for NAL membership, including an individual subscription to NJL, are £32/$50 for full-paying members and £16/$25 for student members.
