The Linguistic Association of the Southwest (LASSO) is a linguistics association in the United States whose purpose is the advancement of the scientific study of language. While many of our members study the languages of the southwestern United States, LASSO has an international focus; it draws its membership and includes linguistic scholarship from any language and any region in the world.

LASSO sponsors an annual meeting, the International Journal of the Linguistic Association of the Southwest, and a newsletter.

Conference

The LASSO annual meeting is distributed across the LASSO area, from Louisiana to the Pacific Coast. LASSO XLIII will be held at California State University, San Marcos, September 18-20, 2014. The 42nd annual conference was held in New Brunswick, New Jersey, in association with The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) and West Chester University of Pennsylvania (WCU). Proposals for future venues are welcome. Meetings may be held at a hotel or on a university campus, though the latter is preferred to make the meeting as accessible as possible to local faculty and students. A set of guidelines for local arrangements committees provides detailed information on expectations and requirements. Contact Daniel Villa to have a copy sent to you.

Journal

The International Journal of the Linguistic Association of the Southwest (IJLASSO) is the journal of LASSO. Membership in LASSO automatically includes a subscription to IJLASSO.

Newsletter

The LASSO Newsletter includes announcements regarding LASSO members and linguistics activities within the Southwest region. The Newsletter is issued twice a year, in February and August. News items of regional interest should be sent to Daniel Villa.
