Dear LINGUIST List readers,

We're back to tell you more about the copious
resources for research on the LINGUIST site!

First, if you're doing language documentation research
or your research is more technical in nature, you should
visit our School of Best Practices.
(http://emeld.org/school/toolroom/software/index.cfm)

For technical tips, try Ask-an-Expert:
http://emeld.org/school/ask-expert/index.html

Please help keep these services free!
https://linguistlist.org/donation/donate/donate1.cfm

In addition, all of our projects can be used to bolster
your research. First, MultiTree is a searchable database
of hypotheses on language relationships. This is a must-see
for anyone interested in the relationships between
languages and language families:
http://multitree.org/

If you are working to encode any linguistic concepts
with your data, consult the General Ontology for Linguistic
Description (GOLD)!
http://linguistics-ontology.org/

Not sure how this works? Poke around the GOLD site, or read
about metadata and other useful information in our school
of best practices:
http://emeld.org/school/readingroom/index.html

Finally, if your research could benefit from the use of
spatial information, you may want to check out LL-MAP, our
language mapping project:

http://www.llmap.org/

We hope you have learned a little bit more about what LINGUIST
has to offer. Please show your support today!
https://linguistlist.org/donation/donate/donate1.cfm

So once you've finished your research, how can you use LINGUIST
to make the most of your career? Stay tuned for the next letter
on LINGUIST's resources for professional development.

Enjoy our resources!
-The LINGUIST Crew
