Portuguese involvement in the description of South Asian languages dates back to the late 15th century, when a short Malayalam vocabulary was appended to the logbook of Vasco da Gama’s first voyage to India. The ensuing production of grammars, dictionaries and translations turned Lisbon into one of the first European centres for the diffusion of linguistic knowledge about South Asia and, as a result, some of the earliest grammars of South Asian languages (such as Tamil, Konkani, Sinhala, or Bangla) produced by Europeans are nowadays preserved in Portuguese libraries and archives.

In view of this tradition, the Centre for Linguistics of the University of Lisbon is happy to host the 32nd edition of the South Asian Languages Analysis Roundtable (SALA-32) between April 27th and 29th, 2016.

SALA began in 1978 at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and has since then become established as one of the principal fora for the scholarly discussion of South Asian linguistics. Traditionally, SALA has been receptive to any descriptive, theoretical, or applied linguistic research concerning the languages of South Asia; the 32nd edition is expected to be equally broad-ranging in terms of the topics and languages represented.
