In december 2005, the 54th annual volume of the Linguistic Bibliography /
Bibliographie Linguistique was published by Springer, Dordrecht. BL 2001
contains 21,579 linguistic titles on the languages of the globe, written in
English and about 50 other languages. For more information, turn to
Springer Verlag at www.springer.com.

after 2001 (23 from 2006). BLonline can be searched free from charge

It is the general policy of the BL editorial team to focus on less common
