Abstract:

This work is a balanced list of references to grammars aimed for
typologists. It lists the most extensive grammatical description for the
best documented language of each genetic subfamily. If there are several
descriptions/languages of more or less the same depth and scope, only one
or two of them are explicitly listed, the rest being traceable via
references. Previously, there has been an oft-noted lack of such a list
that is unbiased, comprehensive and up-to-date. 
All known reported languages, whether living or dead, are accounted for by
pointers to publications with information on the language. The listing is
headed with clear definitions on what is included, information on related
language listings, statistics on 
the documentation of languages, and some information on the issues of
language description in general.
