Word from Oxford

I am pleased to announce the launch of this monumental project designed to support linguistics scholarship in the digital age. Our goal is to create a high-level, evolving, and up-to-date research encyclopedia for scholars and students of linguistics and related disciplines.

This dynamic reference resource will evolve as the discipline evolves, and will, in the long term, reach an unparalleled level of comprehensiveness. It will feature vetted, cutting-edge overview articles on a wide array of specialized topics and will direct scholars to a range of relevant resources, including datasets, audio-visual materials, pedagogical tools, and more. The Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Linguistics will serve as a hub for the discipline, and we hope that it will become the go-to resource for scholars and students of linguistics.

Professor Mark Aronoff and the international experts on the advisory board are already at work laying the foundations of the project. We welcome your feedback as we build the Oxford Research Encyclopedias. It will become a collaborative initiative between Oxford University Press and the global scholarly community, so please check this site for updates and news about the project, and consider getting involved.

We look forward to working with you!
