The Mrlsst Center for Linguistic Studies was a center established on Mrlsst around 822 BBY. It was devoted to creating a database that contained a listing and cross-translation of every form of verbal communication in the galaxy. It was used to train ambassadors and merchants throughout the Galactic Republic. In 22 BBY its Academy Head was Proctor Cheelka. Following several slashes of the General Ministry Institutes budget, funding came largely from private donations.
