The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

approaches as scientific means to, first, capture knowledge conveyed in
texts using domain-specific terminology and, secondly, to represent this

English and deal with domains of interest for military operations and
intelligence analysis. The project will investigate and develop automated
