Computer Bulletin Boards for Individual Languages

Prepared by Bernard Comrie
Version of 7 May 1993

I apologize for the delay in distributing this summary, in part
the result of checking as many of the entries as possible--though
there are no doubt remaining errors in my listing--in part the
result of other commitments. I am grateful to all respondents to
my request for information. I have restricted this listing to
bulletin boards devoted primarily to the linguistic study of
individual languages and groups of languages (though I have
slipped in a couple of other things that attracted my attention,
in particular lists for language learners). I hope that other
correspondents to LINGUIST will be encouraged to maintain
corresponding lists for branches of linguistics, particular
approaches to linguistics, language teaching, etc.

The usual way of subscribing to a list is to send the following
message to the listserver (not to the address for enquiries):

 SUBSCRIBE <name of list> <your first name> <your last name>

In my listing below, the name of the list is given in
capitals/upper case and in round brackets/parentheses. When you
subscribe, you will receive instructions on how to contribute to
the list, and on how to remove your name from the subscription
list (usually: SIGNOFF <name of list>).

A list of mailing lists available on Internet is available by
anonymous ftp from ftp.nisc.sri.com (192.33.33.32) in the file
/netinfo/ interest-groups. A directory of scholarly electronic
conferences is maintained by Diane K. Kovacs
(dkovacskentvm.bitnet or kentvm.kent.edu) and is available by
sending the message

 get acadlist readme

to one of the following addresses:

 listservkentvm.bitnet
 listservkentvm.kent.edu

The materials you will receive include instructions for getting
more detailed descriptions of particular sets of electronic
conferences (e.g. LANGUAGES, LINGUISTICS). Those interested in
contacting speakers of languages (not necessarily linguists)
should also consider contacting the appropriate soc.culture list
(e.g. soc.culture.polish).

Finally, before the listing itself, a request: Is there someone
out there would be interested in helping me to maintain this
list? I am not a good person to do this on my own, as I spend
substantial portions of my time in places where I have limited or
no access to e-mail. If you are interested, please contact me
(comrievm.usc.edu or comrieuscvm.bitnet).
