The Linguistic Bibliography Online is an essential linguistic reference tool that is unique in its field. It provides over 300.000 bibliographical references to scholarly publications in linguistics and is by far the most comprehensive bibliography in the field.
The Linguistic Bibliography Online covers all disciplines of theoretical linguistics, both general and language specific, from all geographical areas, including endangered and extinct languages, with particular attention to lesser known Indo-European and non-Indo-European languages. Up-to-date information is guaranteed by the collaboration of some forty contributing specialists from all over the world. With annually over 20.000 records added arranged according to a state-of-the-art system of subject and language descriptors, the Linguistic Bibliography remains the standard reference work for every scholar of linguistics.
The online edition contains all entries of the printed volumes as of 1993 and new records are added on a monthly basis. Annual volumes of the Linguistic Bibliography will continue to be published in print by Brill

The coverage of the Linguistic Bibliography is constrained in the following ways:
|•||Only scientific publications are included, no popular pamphlets and pedagogical works (the pedagogical restriction being moderated in the case of lesser known languages)|
|•||Applied linguistic publications are listed only if they have theoretical implications|
A network of international specialists ensures world-wide in-depth coverage. Some of these experts are responsible for a specific field of linguistics, others cover the complete production of their home country.
The Linguistic Bibliography has been published in printed form since 1950.
