Dear all,

I found Glottopedia sometimes useful in the parse, although it is quite sparse for particular topics:

This entire discussion has taken a somewhat unexpected turn ...

Thank you for pointing that out. The whole SIL discussion was merely to
accomodate for Marías original remark that

> I know the SIL one but I think someone mentioned some concerns about it.

... and these concerns sometimes might have an ideological basis more than
a linguistic one. No SIL-bashing intended. Also the quoting wasn't that
selective either, I only omitted the concrete example reference for the
"standard linguistic resources" mentioned along with SIL.

So, shall we focus again on the original question? Is anyone aware of any
other recommendable human-readable (and preferrably openly licensed)
terminology repository that we can recommend? (Aside from helping María,
we might actually put a list on the wiki, if something substantial emerges
 from this discussion.)

Along with sections on linguistic terms in Wikipedia, Wiktionary, etc. we

- SIL linguistic terms
- ISOcat*
- TDS ontology*
- grammis**

(* intended to be machine-readable rather than human-readable)
(** German only)

Anything else?

All the best,
