Welcome to the UK Linguistics Olympiad

(UKLO, pronounced /juklou/)


UKLO is a competition for students who are still at school (or equivalent college) – any age, any ability level – in which they have to solve linguistic data problems.

  • Similar competitions happen in a number of other countries, though it’s only recently that they’ve taken place in English-speaking countries.
  • The UK Olympiad also enters a team in the International Linguistics Olympiad.
  • We have a large collection of past problems.
  • It’s completely free to both competitors and schools.
