Qs: Language Maps

Editor for this issue: Elyssa Winzeler <elyssalinguistlist.org>


We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Hello everyone,

I am a PhD student at Virginia Tech in the Department of Geography. My
main interest areas are in cartography and map communication. For my
research I am interested in understanding the cartographic presentation of
language and am currently seeking language maps (in print or online) to
survey their characteristics. While I have been searching and collecting
language maps myself, I wanted to ask the linguist community if you would
be willing to share any references or links to language maps you may use in
your classroom, have come across in research, have created yourself, or
have simply found interesting or engaging. I am interested in the full
array of language maps available with no limitations of specific regions,
languages, dates of publication, or data types as I am inventorying their
cartographic characteristics rather than their specific map messages. Any
information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very
much for your time.

Sincerely,

Candice Luebbering
