Message 2: dictionary of linguistic terminology

Subject: dictionary of linguistic terminology
The best dictionary of linguistic terminology that is currently available is
 Bussmann, Hadumod. 1990. Lexikon der Sprachwissenschaft.
 2nd edition. Stuttgart: Kroener.
It contains 2125 articles (3500 entries), much more than Crystal's
dictionary, and rich references at the end of each article. The focus is
on German linguistics (e.g., there is an article on Pertinenzdativ, but
not on possessor ascension), but it is very up to date (e.g., there is an
article on DP).
Another recent linguistic dictionary is
 Jarceva, V.N. (ed.) 1990. Lingvisticheskij enciklopedicheskij slovar'.
 Moskva: Sovetskaja Enciklopedija.
This is a much bigger encyclopedia with 2500 articles (many of them on
language families), and 6800 linguistic terms in the subject index.
