Hi Amy,

There is a listserv for historical linguistics in general called histling (https://mailman.yale.edu/mailman/listinfo/histling-l). I'm not an English (or Germanic) specialist, so I do not know of any specialized ones, but I suspect they do exist.

best,
Margaret

Subject: OT: historical linguistics inquiry

[EXTERNAL]

I apologize for this off-topic inquiry:

I think we've got a historical linguist on the list -- Paul Johnson?

I've just discovered Cummings' _An Introduction to the Grammar of Old
English: A Systemic Functional Approach_. I was wondering if anyone is
doing the same for other historical languages, like Old Norse/Icelandic.
So, I was wondering where the conversations regarding historical
linguistics are happening: mailing lists, etc.
