On December 13, 1990, The LINGUIST List was officially born online! Our very first message went out over the list (see it here: and we never could have imagined the way LINGUIST would become a world-wide community of academic linguists and language enthusiasts. No other discipline has anything comparable to what LINGUIST List has become!

Just as then, we continue to bring you the very foremost in linguistics news, publications, and job announcements. This year, our 30th, we rolled out a newly updated "Programs" function and, most notably, launched our beautiful new website! As we celebrate this momentous birthday, we remind you that it is YOU who have made LINGUIST successful. The engagement of linguists around the world drives us onward and upward.

As LINGUIST List now enters another decade of dedication, we'd immensely appreciate if you could join in our birthday bash by giving us a gift of donation. The LINGUIST List is, and will always be, free of charge to our readers! Your gifts help ensure that we are able to uphold our mission, supporting current and future linguists for years to come. With your help, we are proud to continue to serve the linguistics community for another 30 years. Any amount of money means the world to LINGUIST List and the linguistics community.
