The Australian Systemic Functional Linguistics Association (ASFLA) was established in 1995 to bring together SFL scholars around Australia into a formally recognised organisation that helps to promote and support scholarship in SFL.


The main objectives of ASFLA are to:

  1. promote scholarship and research in SFL
  2. disseminate the results of research in SF linguistic theory
  3. organise national conferences around SF linguistic theory and related fields
  4. support appropriate SFL teaching activities
  5. maintain the relationship with the International SFLA

The ASFLA constitution can be found here.
