E-mail this message to a friend
The Virtual Linguistics Campus' language index, which has been made
freely available to all VLC-community members, is now using Google-Maps and
precise GEOData information. Furthermore, an interface (The VLC Language
Editor) has been added allowing all community members to add or correct
language data thus expanding the language index which currently hosts more
than 130 languages (the majority of them with standardized audio data).
To use the VLC-language index you have to become a VLC-community member:
- Visit the Virtual Linguistics Campus: www.linguistics-online.com
- Create your own account and activate it via an email message.
- Login with your personal data
- Use the language index package as part of your personal “VLC-Toolbox”
Recent additions to the VLC language index have been Ghomala, Nobiin,
Kinyarwanda and Kalami.
By the way, if you add a language, the copyright remains yours !

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c)
Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations
can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax
payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
