Anyone have anything on Nihali? That is, not Nahali.

I apologize if this has been asked before. Are there any good books or online resources that list native English words (i.e. Anglo-Saxon words) that were displaced by borrowed words? For example, how the English word "ruth" (Old English hrēowð) was dropped in favor of "pity".

In case someone has a use for it... It's already hosted on my dropbox so might as well share
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/193 ... %8C%20.pdf
this is a scan of a spanish textbook for native mandarin speakers. i think it's pretty modern, since it's currently at use at some beijing university. AFAICT it quickly starts getting into the intricacies of spanish: the reflexive pronouns and the " lo " thing and whatnot.

Good meta-resource of PIE language family internal pronoun reconstructions.

https://digilib.phil.muni.cz/bitstream/ ... sequence=1

I see a few mistakes, but otherwise, great.

The writers of the Tumblr blog The Qwanqwa Project have uploaded a drive with lots of resources on African languages, including, for example, a grammar of Modern South Arabian.

Christian Lehmann, Thoughts on Grammaticalization (3rd ed.): http://langsci-press.org/catalog/book/88. Lehmann's homepage also provides downloads of articles that correspond more or less to chapters in the 2nd – as yet never written – volume.

The book is maybe a bit heavy on Indo-European languages, but it's a standard work on the topic, and I wish some of the things in it had been pointed out to me earlier in my conlanging. It contains a few useful charts summarizing typical grammaticalization paths, which may help to make your conlang a bit more plausible and consistent in its morphology.

I used to work there. If you look at some of the introductory essays on branches of Indo-European there, you'll see me listed as one of the authors for some of them. In reality, I was basically the main author; Jonathan Slocum was my supervisor who mostly just formatted stuff.

I have to say, I am using about.com more and more for lang info and research, it really is a good resource, and besides the pop-ups pretty user friendly

french.about.com and german.about.com are my go-to resources for those two languages. I think italian.about.com might be it for Italian, too, and there's also spanish.about.com, but I never used them too much. chinese.about.com is actually not that useful FWIR.

The SEAsite homepage contains information on South East Asian languages in general.

Indeed - at least for the major ones and a few of the Tai languages. That's why it's my go-to for those languages.

I need a Vulgar Latin dictionary if the above is not possible. But I refer you to dictionary.com which gives the etymology of all the words available (and some VL and CL words, but not enough). I find it hard to believe that, say for French, such a resource doesn't exist.

I think there's only so much we know about Vulgar Latin anyway, though.

A rather hefty PDF detailing a proposed reconstruction of the Khoisan family: http://starling.rinet.ru/Texts/khoisan.pdf Of course I don't know if I can vouch for its accuracy but it is quite an interesting resource nonetheless for the sheer size of what it's trying to tackle.

But I thought they'd debunked the idea that the Khoisan family is actually a genetic relationship?

starling.rinet.ru FWIR has a bunch of old dictionaries like this that don't necessarily reflect either the latest scholarship in the field or how languages are even classified these days.

Depending on what exactly is acceptable in this thread, there could be tons and tons of websites I could list here, so it's impossible for me to remember them all of the top of my head, but I guess I'll try to add things here as I do remember them, if that's okay. For now, I guess I'll start of by just sharing these (note that I've already shared a few above, too):

An article in Spanish on the history of the verb gustar: http://gramatica.usc.es/~vvazq/pdf_publ ... s_2007.pdf
An English -> Persian dictionary: http://www.farsidic.com/en/Lang/EnFa
A Persian -> English dictionary (with keyboard; you can click on the letters on the screen if you like, as I do): http://www.farsidic.com/en/Lang/FaEn
A list of resources for Mandarin Chinese: http://learningchineseonline.net/
The website for Singapore's Speak Mandarin Campaign, which also IIRC has good learning resources for Mandarin: http://mandarin.org.sg/en
(Not sure how useful this is going to be at all, but oh well, here it is anyway:) A video consisting of an audio course for learning Qingtianese through Mandarin, with the subtitles in the captions: http://qtnews.zjol.com.cn/video/text.asp?id=3998 (Warning: a native speaker of Qingtianese I know tells me that the characters used for transcribing Qingtianese here are merely phonetic, not at all the actual characters used when writing Qingtianese (though it's generally hard to tell what the appropriate characters are as well), and also takes issue with some of their data).
For Japanese:
http://thejapanesepage.com
http://imabi.net
A set of dictionaries for Korean: http://dic.naver.com/; includes a hanja dictionary: http://hanja.naver.com/
And let's not forget WIktionary, of course!
