The African Language Association of Southern Africa (ALASA)
was established in 1979 as a non-discriminatory, non-profit-making
association at a conference hosted by the Department of African
Languages of the University of South Africa (UNISA).
ALASA has two main aims:
1. to promote interaction between researchers, students and teachers of
African languages and literature, and
2. to assist in the promotion of research, language development and
effective verbal and written communication in a multilingual society,
for example, in matters relating to language planning and policy,
education policy and liaison with other organisations with similar

CANCELLATION OF THE EASTERN CAPE REGIONAL CONFERENCE OF ALASA
In view of the prohibition of gatherings of more than 100 people, as announced by the State President, and the more detailed communique from the University to postpone conferences in and outside the institution, we regret that we have to cancel our regional conference.
We wish to thank you for the trouble you took to prepare and send us your abstracts.
The South African Journal of African Languages is published in
association with ALASA.
