Where do you go when you need to look up the linguists of the world? What about researching the linguistics programs at various universities? What about discovering institutions of research in a certain region?
Chances are, you probably check your favorite search engine. But did you know that the LINGUIST List has all this information available for you to browse and search in one unified place?
For decades now, the List has been collecting the submitted names and affiliations of linguists who contribute to the List, posting their dissertations or papers, participating in discussions, and adding to the collection of knowledge.
This has resulted in the largest and most comprehensive database of linguistic People records available on the internet today. Our People records have more than 27,000 entries of voluntarily self-submitted biographic information about linguists around the world- including academic affiliations; recent publications, books, papers, or other authored materials; links to relevant book reviews; and personal academic connections.
You can browse the People listings here: https://linguistlist.org/people/personal/index.html
Over the years we have also maintained a database of linguistic institutions and programs around the world. Institutions of higher learning, as well as research and governmental organizations. You can look up institutions and universities by their subfield focus and department size, learn about funding opportunities and application deadlines. The List has thousands of records of updated information about graduate school programs, integrated with the People records, making your search for potential faculty collaborators or advisors that much easier.

These resources are freely available to all, and it is our pleasure here at the LINGUIST List to employ the graduate students who maintain and update these databases. But without your support it is impossible to continue this work. We thank you sincerely for your contribution today.
