The Brazilian Linguistics Association (abbreviated as "ABRALIN" from the Brazilian Portuguese Associação Brasileira de Lingüística) is an organization intended to bring together professionals in the field of linguistics in order to promote, develop, and disseminate information about theoretical and applied linguistics to students and interested community members in Brazil. The organization hosts scientific conferences, courses, and publications.

The group was founded on January 9, 1969, in an assembly presided over by Professor Joaquim Mattoso Câmara Júnior, in São Paulo. The group was headquartered in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

The first administration (1969–1971) consisted of:

President: Aryon Dall'Igna Rodrigues (Museu Nacional-RJ)
Secretary: Francisco Gomes de Matos (UFPE)
Treasurer: Maria Marta Coelho (UFRJ)
Advisors:

Geraldo Calábria Lapenda (UFPE)
Isaac Nicolau Salum (USP)
Joaquim Mattoso Câmara Júnior (UFRJ)
Jürn Philipson (USP)

Today, the ABRALIN headquarters is found at the host institution of the current president.
