What is the HKLO?

Hong Kong has been accredited by the Board of  International Linguistics Olympiad! The Hong Kong Linguistics Olympiad (HKLO) is a contest for secondary school students in solving linguistic puzzles. These puzzles require only logical ability, patient work and the willingness to accept challenges. No prior knowledge of linguistics or second languages is required. Students can learn more about the knowledge of world languages and improve their abilities of observation, logic and awareness of diversity while solving problems involving language data. Everyone is welcome to give it a try and explore the wondrous realm of language and experience its gems. The working language for HKLO is English. The working language of IOL (International Linguistics Olympiad) and APLO (Asia Pacific Linguistics Olympiad) can be chosen by individual contestants (English/Chinese). Participants who are eligible for linguistic Olympiads in other nations/regions (in addition to Hong Kong) cannot compete in multiple contests each year. Participants need to choose to partake only in HKLO or one of the other they are eligible for.

How did the HKLO come about?

The first Olympiad competition in linguistics held for secondary school students took place in 1965 in Moscow, thanks to the efforts of Alfred Zhurinsky (1938 - 1991). Thereafter, other than Russia, a number of countries and states, including Bulgaria, Oregon in the US, and the Netherlands, all hosted similar events. As more and more players participated in competitions all around the world, the concept of an International Olympiad in Linguistics came into being in 2002, with the first IOL being held in 2003 in Bulgaria. Countries that participated include Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, the Netherlands, and Russia. Starting in 2003, the International Olympiad in Linguistics was held annually in different cities, and the number of participating countries and participating students gradually increased.
According to the regulations of the IOL, each participating nation must hold a nationwide competition to select participants. On the basis of these regulations, we work to establish the first Hong Kong Linguistics Olympiad (HKLO) in 2019. How many HKLOs will be held in the future? And will we continue? We don't know yet. Therefore, if you have any interest at all, take action now and register! Don't be shy -- join us now!
