Qs: Defining Alpine Languages

Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean <daniellelinguistlist.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.cfm.

Dear LINGUIST List subscribers,

I have been asked to clarify the term "Alpine languages" in a scientific
connection. The term has been explained on this wiki:


However, I am reluctant to quote a wiki page or Wikipedia in a
dissertation. Consequently I would like to find a more solid source for
my quotations. Could you, by any chance, recommend a scientific work
where the term is properly defined? I would be most grateful to you for
any help in this respect.

Best regards,
