Dear Subscribers,

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

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:

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.

You can browse the Programs listings here:

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.


Thank you,

Brent Woo
