Scholarly sources are:
|Books/book chapters||Scholarly journal articles|
I'm suggesting the Library Search tool (search box on the library home page), as the best starting point for most of your topics, for the following reasons.
Searching an individual database can help reduce the number of results you get and help to find journal articles on written from specific disciplinary perspectives. The ones listed below are ones that are likely to include articles related to linguistics.
This is not a comprehensive list of our databases! If none of these match up with your topics well, please email me your topic and I can advise on databases for other subject areas!
