Welcome to WikiProject Linguistics. We are a group of editors collaborating to improve linguistics articles on Wikipedia. We cover a broad range of subjects within the general field of linguistics, including theoretical linguistics, applied linguistics, etymology, and phonetics. You will find a number of resources on this page to help you with improving Wikipedia's coverage of linguistics; take your time and have a look around. If you have any questions, please ask them on the discussion page, and we will be happy to help you.



Getting started[edit]

There are a number of things you can do right now to help:

Open tasks[edit]

Articles to be created[edit]

Requests for expansion[edit]

  • verbal case – got an outline, but need examples of verbal morphology claimed to be 'case'

Requests for attention[edit]

  • November 2013 – Linguist expert needed with focus on orthography and spelling:
Spelling (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)

Requests for review[edit]

  • Traditional grammar has been completely rewritten. The article is focused on pedagogical grammar traditions, with a history of the tradition, and allusion to a couple of the critiques that linguists tend to make of such systems. Currently rated start class, mid importance, but review is warranted.
