Proceedings of the 2012 Conference of the Australian Linguistic Society

The 2012 Conference of the Australian Linguistic Society was held at the University of Western Australia in Perth from December 5th to 7th 2012.

After the conference, seventeen of the over 100
presented papers were submitted for these Proceedings. All Proceedings submissions were subject to anonymous peer review by at least two reviewers who were independent of the conference organising committee. Eleven papers have been accepted. The Proceedings review process was separate from the review of abstracts for presentations at the conference.

We thank all the reviewers for their very important contributions.
