    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 Web servers.

    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?
