Purpose: The Linguistic Institute was founded to encourage research and study in linguistic science. It is ready to cooperate as far as possible with any scholar or group of scholars in any undertaking that seems likely to increase our knowledge or to encourage the pursuit of knowledge. A history of the Institute may be found in Bulletin No. 2 of the Linguistic Society of America, which may be obtained at ten cents a copy from Professor R. G. Kent, Secretary of the Society, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
Research: The Institute stands sponsor for certain work on the American Indian languages supervised by a committee, of which Professor Franz Boas of Columbia University is chairman, and which is financed by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. In 1928 work was done on the following languages: Wappo, Chipewyan, Tonkawa, Yuchi, Nooksak, Kalapuya, Molale, Quileute, Tuscarora, Pawnee, Dakota, Atsugewi, and Zuñi. During 1929 Jaime de Angulo will work on Kalapuya and Achomawi, Melville Jacobs on Kalapuya and Molale, Harry Hoijer on Tonkawa, and Guenter K. Wagner on Yuchi. Other projects are being arranged.
Conference and Study: A second summer session of the Linguistic Institute will be held from July 8 to August 16, 1929, at New Haven, where Yale University has again placed dormitories, classrooms, and library at our disposal.
The intention is to provide for students of linguistic science facilities
