Interested participants


A free wiki about linguistics (grammar [syntax, usage, PoS] and orthography [spelling and pronunciation]). It will be divided into the subsections for grammar and orthography, and sub-subsections for spelling, phon(et) ics, syntax, and usage. Basically, Wikiproject Linguistics (which grew too fast), and the Linguistics sections for Wikibooks and Wikisource all combined into one, plus a unique section for etymologies. This'll probably grow big, too!
