THE LINGUISTIC SOCIETY OF AMERICA was founded in 1924 for the advancement of the scientific study of language in all its aspects. Toward this end, it has held annual meetings for personal contacts and the reading of papers; it has established new media of publication for the fruits of linguistic research; it has organized the Linguistic Institute; it is constantly cooperating with other agencies interested in linguistic study. The high standing of the Society is shown by the names of its presidents, Hermann Collitz, Maurice Bloomfield, Carl D. Buck, Franz Boas, Charles H. Grandgent, Edward Prokosch; and by its election to membership in the American Council of Learned Societies.
The annual dues are Five Dollars; membership always begins on January 1. Members receive, without additional charge, all the publications of the Society, including Language, which appears quarterly, and the Language Monographs, Language Dissertations, and Bulletins, which are issued at irregular intervals; members alone are eligible to present papers at the meetings and to publish in the several series. The previous volumes of the publications (1925-1929) are still obtainable; the first four are offered at a special price to new members in 1930.
