The LINGUIST List is dedicated to providing information on language and language analysis, and to providing the discipline of linguistics with the infrastructure necessary to function in the digital world. LINGUIST is a free resource, run by linguistics students and faculty, and supported primarily by your donations. Please support LINGUIST List during the 2016 Fund Drive.

FYI Body: THE LINGUIST LIST READERS MAY BE INTERESTED TO LEARN THAT THERE'S A NEW VERSION OF GLOTTOLOG, THE COMPREHENSIVE CATALOG OF THE WORLD'S LANGUAGES, WHICH NOW INCLUDES ABOUT 200,000 BIBLIOGRAPHICAL REFERENCES:

HTTP://GLOTTOLOG.ORG/

GLOTTOLOG IS SIMILAR TO ETHNOLOGUE AND THE LINGUIST LIST'S MULTITREE IN THAT IT CONTAINS A COMPLETE LIST OF THE WORLD'S LANGUAGES (HIERARCHICALLY ARRANGED BY GENEALOGY), BUT IN ADDITION IT CONTAINS A LARGE NUMBER OF REFERENCES ON THESE LANGUAGES. MOREOVER, FOR EACH LANGUAGE THERE ARE LINKS TO OTHER RESOURCES (MULITREE, LL-MAP, WIKIPEDIA, ELCAT, WALS).

PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU THINK THAT GLOTTOLOG CONTAINS MISTAKES OR IS INCOMPLETE WITH RESPECT TO A LANGUAGE THAT YOU HAVE SPECIAL KNOWLEDGE OF!
