The Societas Linguistica Europaea (SLE) is a non-profit non-governmental organization. It is not tied to any particular national interests and thus the natural home for linguists who think European.
- SLE is the only continental professional organization of linguists and, besides the Comité International Permanent des Linguistes, the only international linguistic association.
- SLE is a democratically constituted organization. The Executive Committee, including the President and the Secretary, are responsible to the general assembly (the Business Meeting). If you want to engage in SLE activities, you are welcome as a candidate for an office.
- SLE Annual Meetings are professionally organized high-quality conferences that cover all of linguistics. They are the choice means if you want to update yourself on current work done in different subdisciplines and in different countries. The conferences are held at renowned universities all over Europe, every year in another country.
Why join the Societas Linguistica Europaea?
Folia Linguistica and Folia Linguistica Historica publish, first and foremost, articles of SLE members. These journals are thus your first address for publishing your own work.
The membership fee is low (it is even lower for students); participation fees at the annual meetings are moderate, too.
