The structure of Glottopedia articles
There are four different types of articles in Glottopedia:
- Glottopedia:Dictionary articles (which define, exemplify, translate, and comment on general and specific concepts and terms of linguistics
- Glottopedia:Survey articles (which offer a comprehensive discussion of linguistic concepts and methods)
- Glottopedia:Biographical articles (about the life and work of linguists)
- Glottopedia:Language articles (which provide basic information about most natural languages [comming soon])
For each kind of article, there are well-defined standards which specify its structure. To ensure consistency, all authors should strictly stick to these standards.
