For most assignments in linguistics and translation, our Discovery Service will give you enough articles to work with. This short video shows you how to get the best from Discovery. 

Sometimes, however, you may want to try specific databases or journals - perhaps your lecturer has recommended particular sources as a good way of finding articles or perhaps you just want fewer articles to look at. This section lists key sources relevant to Linguistics and Translation.
