Language Resources

Most of our language dictionaries are shelved in the reference section, but you can check GRACE for a circulating copy. We also have books on grammar, syntax, and the history of the language for some texts- most of these are shelved downstairs in our circulating collection.  Be aware that specialized dictionaries may not be classified with other materials on a particular language, such as dictionaries of Buddhist terms. 

You can also do a subject search for English language -- dictionaries -- {insert language} to find more languages than we have listed here... we are always purchasing more, so check our catalog for new ones or suggest a purchase
