The Tromsø Repository of Language and Linguistics (TROLLing) is a repository of data, code, and other related materials used in linguistic research. The repository is open access, which means that all information is available to everyone. All postings are accompanied by searchable metadata that identify the researchers, the languages and linguistic phenomena involved, the statistical methods applied, and scholarly publications based on the data (where relevant).

Linguists worldwide are invited to post data, code, and related materials used in linguistic research. The TROLLing Steering Committee is responsible for the scientific content of the repository, whereas the University Library provides quality and relevance control, in addition to user management. The University Library also oversees the technical and legal organisation of TROLLing.
