At the very least Glottopedia needs a portal for "Historical Linguistics" and I would advocate one for "Linguistic Classification" as well. At this point I don't feel close enough to the project to actually edit in these changes. Dkleinecke 00:21, 27 October 2007 (CEST)

Note that there is a proposed portal called "Diachrony" (this is also the name of the corresponding category). You might want to make a case to rename it, but I find it more elegant than "historical linguistics" (and note that one can study languages like Latin or Sumerian purely synchronically). As for "classification", I would prefer the term "genealogical classification", because it is more precise.--Haspelmath 18:13, 28 October 2007 (CET)
