The Interactive ALR is a powerful online resource for the comparative
study of Native American languages. Built from the ever-expanding
catalog of our American Language Reprint (ALR) series, The Interactive
ALR puts a growing 10,000 word linguistic database and powerful search
capabilities into the hands of scholars, allowing for comparison of
dozens of historical vocabularies in the blink of an eye. Representing
400 years of linguistic data, and over two dozen languages scattered
throughout more than 50 different documents, the database brings
together a collection of information that has never before been so
readily accessible in either book or electronic form.

Evolution will be beta-testing this database during December 2003 and
most functions will be freely available, including:

* Enhanced word search allowing the user to search for words, phrases
and letter patterns in native entries as well as their English

* An Interactive Linguistic Atlas, plotting native words on the user's
choice of seven printable maps.

* Ability to restrict searches by date and linguistic family.

* Custom Lexicon generation for combining and comparing vocabularies
in either dictionary or table format.

* Unlimited access to full-text versions of the entire ALR series
(currently 30 volumes) in printable PDF format.

* Selected scans of the original sources of linguistic data

* First access to newly added data which will be uploaded to the
database before it appears in book form.

* Supplemental data and word-lists that do not appear in the book

Interested scholars are encouraged to experiment with the database
during the beta-testing period. For more information, visit:

After December 31, 2003, the full functionality of the database will
be available via subscription. A special reduced rate is available to
members of SSILA.
