Query:   DEAR LINGUISTS,

I AM PUTTING TOGETHER A BIBLIOGRAPHY ON GENETIC CLASSIFICATION AND AREAL LINGUISTICS. MY STARTING POINT IS M. RUHLEN'S A GUIDE TO THE WORLD'S LANGUAGES, BUT I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY SUGGESTIONS OF MORE RECENT BOOKS OF ARTICLES. IF YOU SPECIALIZE IN A SPECIFIC LANGUAGEE FAMILY, I WOULD ALSO APPRECIATE SUGGESTIONS ON WORK THAT I SHOULD NOT OVERLOOK. I AM TRYING TO INCLUDE ALL PROPOSED GENETIC/AREAL CLASSIFICATIONS, INCLUDING NOSTRATIC, AMERIND, WORK BY GREENBERG AND SHEVOROSHKIN, ETC.

I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY IDEAS YOU HAVE AND I WILL POST A SUMMARY.
