subject description and guidelines

  • Cornell Library’s linguistic collection focuses on both theoretical and applied linguistics and spans all major subfields of linguistics: phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, historical and comparative linguistics, Indo-European philology, sociolinguistics, cognitive linguistics, and recently computational linguistics.


  • The collection serves primarily the Department of Linguistics, but is also of interest to the departments of Classics, English, Romance Studies, the Language Resource Center, the Institute for European Studies, and the Asian Studies programs.
