Qs: Language Academies Studies

Editor for this issue: Elyssa Winzeler <elyssalinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Dear (socio)linguists,

For the purpose of preparing a sociolinguistic study of the academies of
Hebrew, Yiddish and Esperanto in comparison with other language academies,
I need your help in locating two kinds of studies on language academies,
especially on their activities: 1) typological studies on language
academies; 2) surveys of individual language academies. I have looked for
the former in English in vain, so I am planning to do my own typology based
on the latter.

The preferred language of publication is English, but if there is no
important study in this language, I can also cope with German, French,
Russian, Japanese, Italian and Spanish.

I will post here a summary of references I will hopefully receive from you.
I myself will probably add references on Hebrew, Yiddish and Esperanto.

Thank you very much in advance for your help.
