Linguistics

Editor in Chief | Area Editors | Articles and Contributors

The study of linguistics makes connections across a wide array of scholarly concerns, from the humanities to many of the social and behavioral sciences to biology, physics, engineering, and even medicine. The study of language is central to a large number of rapidly advancing fields, such as neuroscience, cognitive science, and computer science. These overlapping domains make it challenging to stay informed about every applicable area and great deal of this work has moved online with the most recent scholarship, research, and statistics appearing in online databases.

Oxford Bibliographies in Linguistics is an entirely new and unique type of reference tool that has been specially created to meet a great need among today’s students and scholars. It offers more than other bibliography initiatives on- and offline by providing expert commentary to help students and scholars find, negotiate, and assess the large amount of information readily available to them. It facilitates research in a way that other guides cannot by providing direct links to online library catalogs and other online resources. Organizing the resource around discrete subject entries will allow for quick and easy navigation that users expect when working on screen.
