History of the Linguistic Society of New Zealand

The Linguistic Society of New Zealand was founded in Auckland in 1958, in order to “promote and pursue the scientific description and study of the evolution and structure of languages”.

The year of 2018 marks 60 years since the inception of the NZ Linguistic Society. To make this auspicious occasion, Te Reo will put together a special Commemoration Issue, which is being edited by Emeritus Prof. Laurie Bauer, from the University of Victoria. More details to follow in due course.
