"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

LINGUIST Mailing Versions

LINGUIST List is a mailing list that includes the text or web address of each issue in an email. You can choose to receive the full version, a digest, or LINGLITE.
  • If you choose the full version, you will receive each issue as it is posted, which may be 10 or more issues per day. You also have the option of specifying which topics you would like to receive or exclude.
  • If you choose the digest, you will receive one email a day that includes all the issues posted for that day, including subject, author, and full text.
  • If you choose LINGLITE, you will receive one email a day that includes all the issues posted for that day, including subject, author, and the URL address where the full text of each issue can be viewed.

    (Note that LINGLITE is designed for people who typically read LINGUIST on the web. It differs from the digest version in that it provides a web link link where you can view the full text of an issue-- this text is not included in the email itself.)
The mailing list for LINGUIST full/digest versions and for LINGLITE are kept separately. For this reason, it is possible to be subscribed to both LINGLITE and another version. If you would like to switch from LINGLITE to another version or vice versa, you must first unsubscribe from one list and re-subscribe to the other.
