Language Log

The Language Log site is the best, most impressive site I’ve seen thus far for accessing information any topic related to the study of languages and their use.  If you want to know something related to how languages evolved, are evolving, are learned, differ from one another, impact one’s view of the world, influence how others see us, or any other language-related topic, you’ll likely find it here.  Below is what the site’s host says about it:

Language Log was started in the summer of 2003 by Mark Liberman and Geoffrey Pullum. For nearly five years, it ran on the same elderly linux box, with the same 2003-era blogging software, sitting in a dusty corner of a group office at the Institute for Research in Cognitive Science at the University of Pennsylvania.

Other more or less regular contributors include Arnold Zwicky, Ben Zimmer,  Victor Mair, Bill Poser, Heidi Harley, Roger Shuy, Geoff Nunberg, Eric Bakovic, Sally Thomason, Barbara Partee, and John McWhorter. And an additional cast of dozens have blogged here from time to time.
