Enjoy a weekend getaway… all from behind your keyboard!

Dear Linguist Listers,

Happy Friday! It’s the weekend, and you know what that means… another edition of the Great LINGUIST Treasure Hunt!

This game involves traveling the (virtual) globe and testing your linguistics wits. The winner will receive a sweet prize, so don’t miss out!

To play, you’ll need to go to GeoLing (http://geoling.linguistlist.org/). To find the buttons you’ll need to navigate the globe, click on the menu button in the upper left hand corner. You can select and unselect Local Events, Jobs, Conferences, and more to view them on the map. Game clues will be found in different locations on different kinds of pins.

To get you started, here’s your first clue:

Featured Linguist San San Hnin Tun has taught on three continents, but she taught at one university for over two decades. You will find your first clue there!

kan kaung ba zay—may the best linguist win!

-Your LL Team

PS: You will need this valuable hint to complete the race: after you’ve found the first clue, which will take you beyond Geoling, you will need to return to Geoling, with your answer from clue 2 to find clue 3!
