Though there is a long and rich tradition of linguistic work on Wakashan, and over the years there have been several important language revitalization efforts in Wakashan-speaking communities, there has never been a single forum where researchers and educators can come together from all across the Wakashan-speaking world to share knowledge and ideas.
The dates of the Wakashan Linguistics Conference have been synchronised with those of the International Conference on Salish and Neighbouring Languages, which will be held at the Squamish Nation on August 11-13.

It is an investigation into Tense and Aspect in the Salish and Wakashan language families, First Nations languages spoken in Western Canada.
The Salish and Wakashan families are an ideal place to conduct this research, since the small amount of existing literature indicates there are marked differences between the ways in which these languages express Tense and Aspect, and the ways in which more well-studied languages such as English do so.
The ultimate goals of this research are to help establish what range of cross-linguistic variation exists in this area of the grammar, and shed light on the nature of temporal systems in human language more generally.
