General collections

  • Google books. Note: To see all books you must surf through an US ip number. Has hundreds of books and a few periodicals from around the turn of the century, notably lots of SPCK books and most of the NE Africa collections associated with Reinisch.
  • MIT dSpace. Has non-printable .pdf:s of all (I think) MIT PhD theses.
  • The Universals Archive at the Univerity of Konstanz.
  • Intercontinental Dictionary Series (IDS) (general editor: Prof. Dr. Mary R. Key).
  • Linguistics Abstracts, available in full online (15 years of fully searchable material) at the Linguistic Resource Centre of Blackwell Publishers.
  • Ethonologue -- an HTML version of the Ethnologue, an index to the languages of the world, maintained by the Summer Institute of Linguistics. This database contains variant names of languages, genetic relations between languages and a number of other data, such as geographical location and number of speakers.
  • Free online browsing of books published by John Benjamins. Ebrary Reader required, follow the link on the browsing site if you don't have this plug-in already.
  • Free online browsing of books published by Cambridge University Press. Ebrary Reader required.
  • Foundation for Endangered Languages.
  • L & C Field Manual and Stimulus Archives by the Language and Cognition Group at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics.
    This site contains a bonanza of material for the field elicitation of semantics and and the field collection of verbal behaviour. These are unique resources that have been compiled over nearly twenty years of investigation of under-studied languages by the Language & Cognition Group at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. For years these Field Manuals have been available on demand, but they have now been put online, and this site will serve as the central repository for both older manuals as well as new ones currently under development. Free registration is required to access the materials
  • (MILB) (Muenchener InterLinear-Text Bibliothek): among other things text samples from some 35 languages.
  • UCP (University of California Press). Free e-books of the latest titles.
  • The Linguistic Association of Great Britain.
  • University of Michigan. Curiously has lots of philippine language grammars but also other grammars and dictionaries from around the world. Only page by page browsing.
  • SIL. The various SIL branches have made a wealth of material accessible in recent years.
  • Robert Beard's pages are a rich source for on-line dictionaries and grammars.
  • Ljuba Veselinova's home page has links to several linguistic resources, of special interest is a page with links dealing with mapping resources.
