Edited by Yvonne Treis and Rik De Busser (La Trobe University)
The 2009 Conference of the Australian Linguistic Society Conference was held at La Trobe University from 9 to 11 July 2009 and was co-hosted by the Research Centre for Linguistic Typology and the Linguistics Program.
Thirty-six papers presented at the conference were submitted for these proceedings, of which twenty-one were accepted for publication after an anonymous peer review. Papers were anonymously reviewed by at least two academic referees to DIISR standards and a majority of papers were reviewed by experts at overseas universities. The review process for the proceedings was separate from and in addition to that of the conference abstracts. We are grateful to all referees for their meticulous work and their constructive comments. We are especially indebted to Joanne Taylor for her invaluable expertise in all stages of the editing process.
We recommend that references to the papers in these proceedings follow the format below:

These proceedings were published in their final form on 30 April 2010.
