    Elfling gone with the wind?

    I've understood from posts by David Salo that the Elfling mailing list is now defunct, because of changes in Yahoo groups. However, I didn't expect that Elfling would completely disappear! Quite a loss in my opinion, since I've often searched in its database (i.e., its collection of old posts) to find linguistic discussion and information. Is there some mirror site or similar where the old info can be found?

    I found that Elfling's messages are still viewable (though awkwardly formatted) if I login to the Yahoo email address I subscribed with. However, you may be interested in TolkLang's searchable mirror of TolkLang, Elfling, and Lambengolmor, though they seem to be only updated until sometime in 2012. The mirrors also appear in a browseable format here.
    "[...] just as lions come in prides and larks in exaltations, the proper collective noun for a group of Elvish linguists is an argument" (Patrick Wynne, VT23:7, 1992).
