Welcome to the Ling-TeX home page.
About Ling-TeX The concept behind Ling-TeX is straightforward
-- it is a mailing list for people interested in typesetting
linguistics material with TeX. We hope to use this list as a means of
identifying, examining, testing, and comparing macros, fonts, style
files, etc. It is meant to provide an avenue for the active exchange
of information and experience. The list is aimed at both current and
potential users of TeX for linguistics, providing a common area for
questions and answers, suggestions, explanations, and samples of what
can be done.
Please note that Ling-TeX is intended to be a dynamic list, where we hope
to not just answer questions, but to encourage testing and comparisons of
various fonts, macros, and whatever else is ``testable''! It would be
helpful if new subscribers could post a brief notice, if they wish to
participate actively, indicating their specific use/non-use of TeX/LaTeX,
their particular area of interest (fonts, macros, etc.), and a note about
what they would like to lend a hand with: testing macros, writing new ones,
modifying existing ones, testing fonts, writing documentation,
proof-reading documentation ... and whatever else comes up.
