Electronic Glossary of Linguistic Terms
(with equivalent terms in Spanish)

Version 0.6, April 2002


J. Albert Bickford, David Tuggy, editors


Throughout the SIL-Mexico website, green underlined words are links to definitions in this glossary. For best results, leave all windows open that are created by the glossary until you are finished using it; the new windows will be re-used. You may want to adjust the size and locations of the windows so that you can see more than one at the same time. (Unfortunately, this functionality is not available in all browsers. In some, everything appears in the same window. In others, certain windows cannot be resized, and each time they receive new content, they revert to their original location.)


Although the glossary is still in preliminary form, we hope that it will be useful, and for that reason we are making it available in its present condition. Any suggestions for improvement can be sent by e-mail to the editors (David_Tuggy@sil.org or Albert_Bickford@sil.org).
