All,

There is a new map on our images resource page: it depicts showing the historic
border between Germanic and Slavic languages
<http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/plc/clpp/images/langmaps/GermanSlavicborderlines-blog427.jpg>one
millennium ago.   A recent message to the list regarding
"zombie borders" discusses how old linguistic borders tend to continue to
exist as administrative
borders, even after political changes.

To get to the language maps pages, go to the website and click on
"resources", then scroll
down to "language maps".

(While you're looking at the pages of language maps, notice how
disorganized this resource is.
Anybody want to volunteer to organize it better?  :-) )
