Das Glottolog sammelt „comprehensive reference information for the world’s languages, especially the lesser known languages“:
Catalogue of languages and families
Glottolog provides a comprehensive catalogue of the world’s languages, language families and dialects. It assigns a unique and stable identifier (the Glottocode) to (in principle) all languoids, i.e. all families, languages, and dialects. Any variety that a linguist works on should eventually get its own entry. The languoids are organized via a genealogical classification (the Glottolog tree) that is based on available historical-comparative research (see also the Languoids information section).
The References section (‚langdoc‘) provides a comprehensive collection of bibliographical data for the world’s lesser known languages. It provides access to 344,601 references of descriptive works such as grammars, dictionaries, word lists, texts etc. Search criteria include author, year, title, country, and genealogical affiliation. References can be downloaded as txt, bib, html, or with the Zotero Firefox plugin.
