Title: Language in Australia and New Zealand
Subtitle: A Bibliography and Research Database (1788 - Present)
Edited By: Gerhard Leitner
Clemens Fritz
Brian Taylor
URL: http://www.mouton-online.com/ausbib.php
Description:

Australia and New Zealand are hosts to hundreds of languages whose
interaction is at the heart of Language in Australia and New Zealand. English
constitutes the natural center and the full range of writings is covered from
1788 to 2001, including dictionaries and glossaries. Comprehensive
coverage is given to the other languages – indigenous, European, Asian, and
contact languages – that have emerged throughout the history of these
nations, especially Kriol, Torres Strait Creole, and Norfolk. The bibliography
also includes onomastics and Australian and New Zealand sign language.
Other themes covered are the interaction of English with indigenous and non-
English-migrant languages; language maintenance, shift, and loss;
psycholinguistic and societal factors; language policies; and educational
responses.

Stored on media-neutral electronic databases, the bibliography offers the
following features

Users can enter any keyword to begin a search (lists of keywords are also
available). Each entry contains a number of keywords, which direct the user
to other related search terms or entries. Internal cross-classifications and
further searches within a search result are possible.

Both the keywords and the comments for each entry give a clear indication
of the main topics covered by the publication, providing the user with a
detailed overview and systematic coverage of the many subfields of
research.

Abstracts or notes are provided for most of the entries.

The bibliography does not only survey publications within their specific areas
of research, but also includes a wide variety of titles dealing with the
application of their findings in related fields and adjacent non-linguistic
disciplines.

Publications covered include monographs, collective volumes, articles in
journals and edited works, proceedings, and difficult to trace literature such
as theses, dissertations, pre-publications, unpublished manuscripts, online
publications, as well as reports from institutions. In these cases, details on
accessibility and location are added, thus avoiding time-consuming searches
elsewhere.

Future editions will include feedback functions so that users can submit
further information and/or abstracts, making the bibliography interactive.

Annual updates: up to new 1000 entries are planned.
