12th International Conference of Nordic and General Linguistics

New dates: 14-16 June 2021 (i.e., one year postponed)!

Registration information coming early 2021

The NGL conference series (previously also known as 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. Its main goals are to create and strengthen connections between researchers working on different languages, with different methodological and theoretical approaches.
