Mailing Lists Project

With hundreds of language-related discussion lists on the Internet, each carrying information of value to other linguists and interested scholars, it can be difficult to know what lists are available, where to find them, or how to access past discussions. Many of these discussions are not archived at all. In 1999, with support from the National Science Foundation (SBR-9975299), the LINGUIST List undertook a project to provide a single permanent and searchable archive site for these hundreds of language fora and discussions, past and present, so that the information they carry could be made freely and readily accessible to anyone in the discipline.

Browse or search the results of this project: over 130 language-related mailing lists.
