Message 1: Dictionaries & Linguistic Fun on the Web

Date: Tue, 30 Jan 1996 15:37:55 EST
From: Robert Beard <rbeardbucknell.edu>
Subject: Dictionaries & Linguistic Fun on the Web
This is to announce several new pages on websites at Bucknell. The
first contain links to over a hundred electronic dictionaries and
thesauri on the World Wide Web representing 44 languages. Most of
these dictionaries may be used online though some must be downloaded.
The URL is:

http://www.bucknell.edu/~rbeard/diction.html

I have also placed four short pieces on various aspects of linguistics
designed to attract undergraduates to linguistics programs by
explaining what linguistics is. For some time now we have been
posting hard copies around campus during the semester and they make a
noticeable difference in the enrollments. Feel free to download them
and put them to good use so long as authorship is preserved. Their
page is located at:
