Subject: Internet-accessible linguistic data-sources
Subscribers have asked us to compile a list of linguistic resources
which are available on the Internet and on World Wide Web, and to
make that list generally available through the LINGUIST File and
Web servers. We've also been asked to compile a list of linguistic
departments and programs which have either Web servers, or information
accessible through gopher or ftp.
We're happy to do this--we think it would be very useful resource
for subscribers--but we need you to help us, by providing the information
that file will contain. These resources can be of any nature: they can be
ftp'able files containing linguistic data, places where gopher servers
having access to linguistic files exist, or documents available through
We've appended the list of linguistic resources we have so far. We
know this is incomplete. Can you help us find what's missing--and
keep us informed of anything new that appears as time passes?
