The Special Subject Collection (Sondersammelgebiet, SSG) Linguistics acquires as comprehensively as possible publications on general linguistics and related areas.
Approx. 1900 monographs and collective works. Journals on subscription: more than 600
We acquire from all over the world publications on general linguistics and related areas written in European languages.
We offer publications of our own in exchange for publications that are not available on the book market.
In addition to conventional literature, we also collect difficult-to-acquire research papers and other publications of provisory or documentary character, such as preprints, work-in-progress-reports etc.
We catalogue and classify all publications acquired, we provide in-depth-classification not only of monographs but also of articles from journals and collective works.
The Special Subject Collection Linguistics acquires as comprehensively as possible publications in general linguistics and related areas. Publications are acquired regardless of the country of origin, the type of publication (i.e. monographs and periodicals, conference proceedings, Festschriften, and other collective works) and of their physical form (print, micro, or electronic), with the sole restriction that they are written in European languages. The collection covers:
applied linguistics · artificial intelligence (narrow selection) · bilingualism · child language · cognitive linguistics (selection) · colloquial language · computer linguistics (selection) · dialectology · history of language · idiomatics · language acquisition · language change · language norm · language pathology (selection) · language planning · language teaching (narrow selection) · lexicology · linguistic logic · mathematical linguistics · morphology · neurolinguistics · onomastics · philosophy of language · phonetics · phonology · pragmalinguistics · psycholinguistics · rhetoric · semantics · semiotics · sign language · sociolinguistics · syntax · textlinguistics · theory of grammar · theory of language · theory of translation
Also included are:
- Indo-Euroean studies
- Indo-European languages that are not part of Special Subject Collections of other libraries
- Gipsy languages
- Publications dealing with linguistic phenomena of more than two languages, i.e. publications that would require more than two Special Subject Collection Libraries to cover their content, e.g. "Syntactic change in English (SSG English language and literature), French (SSG French language and literature), and Spanish" (SSG Spain, Portugal)
Covered by other Special Subject Collections are:
- Language teaching, if the focus is on teaching methodology: SSG 5.3 Education research
- Cognitive studies and psychology of language if the psychological aspect is dominant: SSG 5.2 Psychology
- Philosophy of language, if the impact is on philosophy: SSG 5.1 Philosophy
- Communication research, if the topic is journalism or mass media: SSG 3.5 Media and Communication Sciences
- For publications dealing with one or two (i.e. less than three) individual languages or phenomena of one or two languages see respective Special Subject Collection libraries or libraries specializing on the respective geographic area.
All the library's holdings in linguistics are recorded in the library's general catalogues. All journals can be found in the online-catalogue OPAC and in the Zeitschriftendatenbank (ZDB = periodicals database online).
Lists of the library's recent acquisitions in linguistics are compiled monthly. Title entries are linked to the online-catalogue OPAC for direct orders.

The Linguistics Repository is supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The aim is to make freely available electronic publications enduringly accessible online and to assure their digital preservation. Each document in the repository is given a unique, persistent web address which can be cited permanently (uniform resource name, URN). Authors are free to opt for first publishing or crossposting - archiving comes along with both. The service of the Linguistics Repository is at no charge for authors or readers. The documents are to be found easily in the internet and are freely accessible to all users under the terms of Open Access.
Most of the library's holdings are kept in closed stacks rather than being directly accessible and have to be ordered a few days in advance.
External users are advised to inquire by post, fax or e-mail whether the books they need are available or to contact the Special Subject Collection specialists (Tel.:+49 +69 798-39 235) or the Info desk (Tel.: +49 +69 798-39 205).
