Review Quotes

"The BL/LB is, since its start, a bibliography covering the entire, continuously extending and diversifying field of the language sciences, with reference to all known language families and languages, past and present. As such it is a unique and indispensable reference tool for linguists, and a research instrument that belongs in any respectable linguistics library." – Pierre Swiggers, in: Historiographia Linguistica, 43/3 (2016) "The merits of the Linguistic Bibliography cannot be underestimated since its reliability and precision and the ample information it provides are unsurpassed". E.F.K. Koerner, Historiographia Linguistica, 4:2/3 (2007)
