- The LINGUIST List is operated by the Institute for Language Information and Technology (ILIT) at Indiana University, Department of Linguistics.
- The aim of the list is to provide a forum where academic linguists can discuss linguistic issues and exchange linguistic information.
- With the aid of contributions from subscribers and the publishing community, ILIT now offers support to 11 graduate students in the Indiana University linguistics department, who serve in return as editors of the list.
- More about the LINGUIST List can be found on our blog, "Get Involved" page, Facebook page or in our quarterly newsletter.
- In addition to the LINGUIST mailing list, ILIT operates a number of technology and infrastructure projects, partially funded by grants from the National Science Foundation.
