The international conference "Linguistic Forum 2022: Traditional speech forms and practices" will be held at the Institute of Linguistics, RAS, on November 17–19, 2022. The conference is part of a series of annual linguistic forums initiated by the Institute of Linguistics RAS in 2019, each dedicated to a socially important aspect of the scientific study of language. The topic of the 2019 Forum was the UN Year of Indigenous Languages. The 2020 Forum "Language and Artificial Intelligence" was devoted to interdisciplinary dialogue among researchers working at the interface of linguistics and computer science. The starting point of the 2021 Forum “Language policy and language preservation” was the UN International Decade of Indigenous languages. The choice of this year is suggested by the fact that 2022 was announced as the Year of the Cultural Heritage of the peoples of Russia.
