The Society for Germanic Linguistics (SGL), founded in 1968, is the largest and most active organization in North America to serve the broad community of scholars teaching and researching in Germanic linguistics and philology. The international membership of the SGL embraces all areas of and approaches to Germanic linguistics and philology, from formal syntax and phonology through historical linguistics to textual editing. The Society represents scholars investigating languages such as Modern German, Dutch, Yiddish, the Scandinavian languages, Afrikaans, Pennsylvania German, English before 1500, and Gothic, as well as texts and manuscripts in these languages. The Society publishes the Journal of Germanic Linguistics (JGL), which, starting in 2001, will appear quarterly. The international Germanic Linguistics Annual Conference (GLAC) is held each spring under the auspices of the Society.
Because SGL is the only society which focuses on Germanic linguistics in the North America, this site offers a lot of information about Germanic linguistics.
However, most resources are papers and theses. Therefore, there are no explanations for basic terms or theories. In other words, this homepage is good for advanced students studying linguistics.
