The Linguistic Association of the Southwest (LASSO) is a linguistics association in the United States whose purpose is the advancement of the scientific study of language. While many of our members study the languages of the southwestern United States, LASSO has an international focus; it draws its membership and includes linguistic scholarship from any language and any region in the world.

My experience within LASSO has been immensely positive and enriching. It has given me the opportunity to be in contact with colleagues who have given me invaluable feedback and who have been part of my growth as an academic. Every year I look forward to participating in the congress and continuing being part of this community.
