Linguistics Resources

  • Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts  
    Abstracts and indexes the international literature in linguistics and related disciplines in the language sciences. The database covers all aspects of the study of language including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics. Complete coverage is given to various fields of linguistics including descriptive, historical, comparative, theoretical and geographical linguistics. Coverage is from 1973 to the present.
  • The Encyclopedia of Language and Linguistics
    This ten volume set is international in scope and directed at an academic and professional audience, although the entries are not intended to be incomprehensible to the novice. Name and title indexes, as well as a general article list, are included.

  • Comprehensive Etymological Dictionary of the English Language
    The author of this dictionary wanted to clear up what he saw as unnecessary vagueness in earlier etymological dictionaries and includes origins for words he found explained elsewhere as "of undetermined origin." Appears to trace words to language origins, but not to source of first recorded use.
