The 2008 conference of the Australian Linguistics Society was organised by Macquarie University and held at the University of Sydney from 2—4 July 2008, as part of Lingfest, a group of conferences associated with the Australian Linguistics Institute. The conference was co-sponsored by the Australian Linguistics Society (ALS), Macquarie University and the University of Sydney Department of Linguistics.
In this E-Proceedings we are pleased to present a selection of papers from the conference, all of which were peer-reviewed by ALS members from around Australia and overseas. This was done in accordance with DIISR HERDC guidelines for claiming their status as fully peer-reviewed, published E1 conference proceedings. The review process was independent of the author, and separate for these E-Proceedings from the earlier review process by which abstracts were accepted for the original conference presentations. Many thanks to all of the people who acted as reviewers and referees. Louise de Beuzeville and Pam Peters edited and compiled the final versions.
These E-Proceedings were published in their final form on 20 December, 2010.
