References Information

Glottolog aims to provide complete references on the world's languages (apart from national languages and a few dozen other major languages for which thousands of studies exist). At the moment, it contains 315075 references on 23243 varieties and families. The sources of Glottolog are given below.

Each reference is annotated for its source. In this way Glottolog gives credit to the creators of the resource that originally contributed the reference. Please help us to make Glottolog's references more complete. If you have a reference that is missing, or even a collection of references, please contact the editors. At the moment, many of Glottolog’s references are not correctly annotated. If you notice a reference that should be annotated differently, please contact the editors.
