Commission of the Lithuanian Language
The Language Commission was put in operation in 1961 as a non-governmental entity under the auspices of the Lithuanian Academy of Sciences.
Now, it is a state-run institution, founded under the auspices of the Seimas (parliament) of Lithuania. The mandate of the Commission comprises not only regulation and standardisation of the language, but also implementation of the official language status. Commission decrees on linguistic issues are compulsory by law to all companies, agencies, institutions, and the media in Lithuania.
