International Linguistics Olympiad
About International Linguistics Olympiad:
The IOL is one of 12 International Science Olympiads for secondary school students, and has been held annually since 2003. Each year, teams of young linguists from around the world gather and test their minds against the world's toughest puzzles in language and linguistics.
No prior knowledge is necessary to compete at the IOL: every problem is self-contained.
Level of Exam:
Each participating country sends 1-2 teams of four contestants each. The methods of choosing these contestants and composing the teams differ from country to country; in most cases a country's contestants are chosen from the winners of their national Linguistics Olympiad.
