A mirror of this page exists at FrathWiki. Note that both pages are updated independently, and thus may not always feature the same content.

This is a collection of links from around the web that provide information about natural languages that can be helpful in either learning the language itself, or simply providing more information about how natlangs work. It is mostly an organization of the links found here. This list is not meant to be for conlangs of any kind or to include international auxiliary languages, no matter how widely spoken.

There is also a separate page with selected links to material about highly Inspirational Natlangs.
