FYI: Glottolog 2.1, Catalog of the World's Languages


Author: Martin Haspelmath

Linguistic Field(s): Typology

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!
