This could be an excellent resource for our students, who tend to go to Wikipedia. The entry on the history of phonetics and phonology is well written and informative. I vote yes!

Comment from faculty member: "The entries are substantive (minimally 2500 words with references and suggested readings) and the coverage is excellent — language teaching, second language acquisition, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, grammar (of all types), corpus linguistics, forensic linguistics, translation and interpretation, multimodal interaction, and more. Also, because the encyclopedia is so broad in scope and the entries are geared toward diverse audiences, I suspect it would be useful to people in related fields on campus. I would definitely recommend getting it if we can."


And, from another faculty member: "the electronic version will have many more entries than the book format. Also, one of the goals of the encyclopedia was to include chapters on under-researched areas in applied linguistics which means that some PhD students will probably be able to find their dissertation topics among these areas."

This would be a valuable resource for faculty and graduate students for locating measures and studies that reference them.

This would be great for our students and faculty. Within the first few minutes of using it, I was able to locate pdfs of several tests for faculty research that we have been trying to find for a couple of weeks. This would be useful for many departments across disciplines.
