The 12th International Conference on Armenian Linguistics (ICAL XII) will feature scholars from around the world participating in person and via Zoom. This conference offers an opportunity to researchers working on various aspects of the Armenian language to share their work and thoughts, whatever their theoretical or methodological approaches may be.
