LSA Annual Meeting

The LSA's Annual Meeting draws over 1,000 linguistics students and professionals to a major North Amrican city every January. 

Linguistic Institutes

The LSA has sponsored the Linguistic Institutes, the premier gatherings of their kind, since 1928. Hundreds of top students and professional linguists gather in the summers of odd-numbered years for a month-long program of courses, conferences, special lectures, social events, networking, and more.


The Institute on Collaborative Language Research provides an opportunity for a diverse group of participants to become trained in a wide range of skills in community-centered language documentation.

Semantics and Linguistic Theory (SALT)

The LSA is a long-term sponsor of the SALT conference, and publishes the SALT Proceedings (Vol 1-26).
