Welcome to the EvoBib Reference Browser
This tool offers 4669 distinct quotes collected from 2383 references on topics in historical linguistics, language typology, and evolution. The quotes are organized by keywords and can browsed with a full text and a keyword search. References are further linked to the EvoBib bibliography, which essentially offers bibliographic entries in BibTeX format.
In this way, the EvoBib Reference Browser completes the EvoBib bibliography by adding real quotes and descriptions to the references collected in EvoBib.

About the Reference Browser
This is a collection of references, collected as part of my research since 2014. The references are ordered by bibliographic keys, which correspond to the keys assigned by the EvoBib bibliography, and further annotated by adding inline comments, external comments, page range, as well as a selection of keywords. The tool was intended to serve as some kind of an "external brain" in my research, as it turned out that I could no longer keep up with all the references I read, and I had to organize myself more properly in order to be able to keep track with the large amount of literature that I encountered in daily research. As of now, the data contains as many as 4669 distinct quotes distributed across 2383 references.
I decided to share these quotes publicly when I realized that it was useful in communication with colleagues to be able to point to a quick quote that would illustrate a given point. I think it is needless to say that in using this reference browser as a research tool, one should make sure to really read and check with the references collected so far.
In the future I plan to further extent the tool, so that other colleagues could join in and add their own quotes. For the time being, however, I still test the tool with myself as only editor, to make sure it works easy enough to edit data in this fashion and to display it on the web.
