Founded in 1924, the Linguistic Society of America seeks to advance the scientific study of language.
The organization puts out various linguistics publications, has an annual meeting in early January that causes hundreds of linguists to converge on whatever city is hosting it that year, offers professional resources for linguists and would-be linguists, and disseminates information about linguistics to the general public.
