Ethnologue, Languages of the World Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. L’ouvrage Ethnologue, Languages of the World, souvent abrégé en Ethnologue, est une publication visant à inventorier toutes les langues du monde, depuis 1951. Jusqu'à la 16e édition de 2009, la base de données était d'abord éditée sous la forme d'un ouvrage papier puis mise en ligne sur le site web; désormais c'est l'inverse[1]. À partir de données confiées par des linguistes experts de chaque région, la 17e édition d’Ethnologue, publiée en 2013, compte 7 105 langues différentes. Éditeur[modifier | modifier le code] Ethnologue est publié par l’organisation missionnaire évangélique SIL International (anciennement Summer Institute of Linguistics), originaire des États-Unis. Avis[modifier | modifier le code] Michael Erard, dans son article du New York Times, note que, « bien que son histoire insolite attire quelques critiques chez les linguistes laïcs, Ethnologue est également loué pour son étendue »[6].

Chester Beatty Library – Collections – The Western Collection – Papyri | The Western Papyri Collection, Chester Beatty Library Papyri Collection Ranging in date from 1800 BC to AD 800, the Chester Beatty Library's collection of papyrus includes rolls, codices and individual documents from Ancient, Roman and Coptic Egypt. It includes many works of outstanding importance, with unique documents and, in some cases, the earliest known copies of particular texts. Many of the papyri in the collection (both religious and documentary) are written in Greek, the official language of Egypt for over 1000 years from the conquest of Alexander the Great until the Arab conquest. The Papyrus Collection was, for the most part, established in the 1920s under the guidance of senior curators in the British Museum's Department of Egyptian Antiquities and Department of Manuscripts; allied Oxford and Cambridge academics also contributed to its formation and development. The principal papyri were purchased through dealers based in Cairo, where Beatty wintered between the wars.
