CYBALIST is a forum devoted to discussing Indo-European (IE) linguistics and related topics concerning the history and culture of IE-speaking peoples. It is the ambition of the owners and moderators of this list to promote and popularise sound linguistic and historical knowledge, and to make our group a hospitable club where professional researchers in IE studies and amateurs with a serious interest in the field can meet and exchange ideas. Consequently, our policy is to encourage stimulating debate but to discourage off-topic chat, crank scholarship, bad netiquette and other forms of counterproductive behaviour.
Members who wish to discuss matters concerning the administration of Cybalist are advised to contact the moderators off-list or join our special side-list dedicated to that purpose:

Etymological note: Cybalist is named after its founder, Cyril (Kirill) Babaev, who started the group in 1999. Kirill is now Editor of the Journal of Language Relationship and the Nostratica website devoted to Nostratic linguistics and long-range comparison.
