The Linguistics Association of Ghana was established in 1992. It evolved with expanded membership out of what was originally known as the Linguistic Circle of Accra, which had been founded in 1967 at the University of Ghana, Legon. After January 1999, the Association became dormant. It was not until 2010 that it was revived with a new constitution as a result of meetings held late in 2009 and early 2010.


The Association organizes two major activities in the year: a workshop, aimed at enhancing the academic skills of its members in January and a conference, where academic papers are presented and critiqued, in July-August each year.



Membership of the Association is open to scholars of language, particularly those who work with and or are interested in languages spoken in Ghana and the West African sub-region. Student membership is encouraged for advanced (graduate) students of linguistics and language studies.


Dues for the current year are:

Gh¢ 100.00 for Regular Members

Gh¢ 30.00 for Student Members.

US$ 80.00 for International Members

The account details for the Association are as follows:

Number: 1361130002333

Bank: Ghana Commercial Bank

Branch: Kisseiman

NOTE: Please be reminded that the name of the member paying the dues should be indicated on the pay-in slip.
