12th International Conference of Nordic and General Linguistics
The NGL conference series (also ICNGL) provides an open forum for linguistic research in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas on Nordic (including Germanic, Finnic, Saamic and Greenlandic) and other languages, including multilingualism.
The international conference of Nordic and General Linguistics (NGL) is organised under the auspices of the Nordic Association of Linguists (NAL).
Its main goals are to create and strengthen connections between researchers working on different languages, with different methodological and theoretical approaches.
This will be the 12th conference, 52 years since the first one, and the third to be organised at the University of Oslo.
Program for June 14–18, 2021. All times listed are in Central European Time
