Source information and format

The source information is all maintained in BibTeX format (cf. in English, in German). BibTex is a content model for bibliographical information that is very widely used in the scientific community and which is supported by a range of free software. Technical documentation for using BibTeX is available here (pdf file, 128kb). You do not need to know about BibTeX to use the information provided on this page however.

The bibliography provided may be searched in a variety of ways. The information is also available in several other formats; but the BibTeX is definitive: that means that any errors in the others may be due to the problems of automatic conversion or to problems with the original BibTeX source. Non-bibtex versions are also not kept particularly up to date, but can be updated on demand. No editing or changes are made in any files except the BibTex source when it is updated. Updates occur irregularly, depending on how much new material has come in.

The files

The entire bibliography file in its original and derived forms are available as follows... As explained above, the bibtex-file is the file which is guaranteedly current, the rest follow at irregular intervals and the updates trickle through. Low priority/usefulness (in my opinion) renditions are updated less frequently and may even go stale or not be served due to changing security profiles on our server, lack of conversion software, etc. Get in touch with me if there is a particular format that you want that is out of date.

Using the bibliography from LaTeX
If you are using the bibliography file from LaTeX and BibTeX (the best way!), then it would be helpful if corrections and additions were not made to the file 00.bib as downloaded. Please refer to the Usage Page for suggestions. See also the Tex2rtf program for a way of using BibTeX without LaTeX (this is now a very old program, however, and so there may well be other ways available).Generally htlatex in Texlive and other releases of Tex will be better.
Adding new entries
Note that sending me updates or new entries in virtually any accepted standard form (excluding free plain text following the whims of the writer on the day) makes it more convenient and easier for me to add them to the database. The longer the list of entries that are submitted, the more this is true.There may be a considerable backlog when I receive (still gratefully!) long lists of publications in plain text or as a Word document: if you are using any bibliographical database software, then that form is infinitely preferable and will result in the entries being added very quickly.
Subject areas

The areas covered include those areas with which I am most concerned, i.e.:

  • linguistics (primarily functional), with a good dose of others, including historically significant work
  • natural language generation
  • systemic-functional linguistics in particular
  • natural language processing
  • discourse analysis and all that involves
  • spatial language
  • semiotics in general and Peirce in particular
  • ontology and natural language
  • multimodal linguistics: particularly multimodal documents, film and visual narrative,multimodal corpora
  • mediality, modality, digital humanities
  • news media
Coverage by year

(This used to be transcluded from: http://liinwww.ira.uka.de/bibliography/Ai/bateman.html but this site is no longer supported and working. Hence all of the extraction and search capabilities using this site are also no longer available.)

Other bibliographical sources

None of the following are accessible any more: the information may be somewhere... pity if it has been lost!

  • Stefan Müller's Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar bibliographical database in Berlin (portal) [actively maintained]
  • Erik Wilde's bibtex file of XML, web, CSCW and related issues (bibtex) [actively maintained]
  • Richmond Thomason's bibliography of Philosophy, Linguistics and much more (bibtex) [22000+ entries; actively maintained]
  • Raymond Lau's bibliography of Speech Recognition and Spoken Language Systems (bibtex) [5397 entries; -1998]
  • Mark Kantrowitz's older natural language generation bibliography (bibtex) [1285 entries; -1995]
  • The University of Pennsylvania bibliography of Artificial Intelligence (bibtex) [10506 entries; -1995]
  • not in Bibtex, but still very useful are the listing by topic on Teun van Dijk's website: including visual communication, critical discourse and much more.
  • And, not necessarily BibTex but with a lot of topics nonetheless: the LinguistList bibliography page
Further information on bibliographical formats

Some assorted links on the issue of large-scale bibliographical sources in the modern world (no, I don't believe that BibTeX is the last word ... it is just several steps further down the path than most!):

Information about LaTeX and conversions

BibTeX is the bibliographical form used with the LaTeX-document preparation system. Here are some notes on this, with ample explanations of why this is really the only way to go for complex or longer documents!:


  • ´Tex2tf: a very useful utility that allows you to write in LaTeX (including using BibTeX citations) but then convert the entire thing to rtf for use in Word, etc. Allows many of the benefits of LaTeX+BibTeX without installing LaTeX. Free.
  • JabRef: a Java based utility for managing BibTeX files, converting to XML, HTML, DocBook, etc. Was used for a while for the files on this site but more recent releases have been problematic. Free
  • And, of course, the LaTeX home page itself!
