I am a heavy user of the Glossary of Linguistic Terms from SIL (web: or resource: International Linguistics Department. Glossary of Linguistic Terms. SIL International, 1996–. The reasons that I find this glossary so useful are (a) it situates the definition by giving concepts above it in a hierarchy and concepts below it in a hierarchy and (b) it provides references to multiple linguistic books where I can read further and ensure that I really understand the concept.

I would like to have a similar glossary for Logos/Verbum that covers all the linguistic concepts (morphology, clause visualization, semantic domains, . . .) and the attributes with which they are tagged (think direct speech, speech acts . . .). In addition to the SIL data, I would also like a link to the documentation to appear in the glossary entry.

While it is not part of my request, you may want to consider it links to grammars, syntax reference books, et. al. should also be part of the glossary.
