How do you say “The LINGUIST List” in your native language?

Dear LINGUIST List readers,

Thank you for reading us daily (or less often) through this blog, the website, the mailing lists, Social Media etc! We’re writing to you to tell you about an opportunity to leave your mark on the LINGUIST List website.

Did you know that our 1990’s website was developed by a team of enthusiastic Linguistics students under the wing of Helen Dry and Anthony Aristar (more about our history here: As time goes by, it is time for us to develop a new look! And in fact, a new Website is in the making — have a peak here:!

We still have some work to do before officially launching it, and we’re now writing to you┬á to let you know about an amazing chance to contribute to the new LINGUIST List website!

Here is our question: how does our name, ”The LINGUIST List”, translate in your native language? We’re curious about all languages, official or not, remote and small or spoken by half of the world! If some would call your native language a dialect, we are still interested! (Note: we’re not curious about how it is automatically translated by a machine ­čÖé please just send us your native language!)

To answer, simply follow this link to a very simple form:

Thank you for your contribution. We look forward to reading your answers!

Linguistically yours,

The LINGUIST List crew
