Links to Google Books

We recently found out that Google Books does already cover quite a few of the books cited in WALS; more precisely, almost 10% of all references cited in WALS are available with previews in Google Books.

So we decided to have a try linking where possible:

  • From the language lists on feature pages:

  • From the lists of feature values on language pages:

  • From info bubbles on maps:

But since discovering the links was done automatically, there will be errors. So if you find references which are available on Google Books but not linked, or links to the wrong book, let us know.
