Two Journals About Multiple Languages

1. Three UCLA students have started an online journal LALA (L.A. LAnguage) to celebrate and examine multilingual diversity in Los Angeles.

2. Words Without Borders is a showcase of international literature translated into English. The site also includes forums, a blog and more. The theme of the February 2007 issue is graphic novels.

Published works are indexed both by the part of the world where they originate (Africa/Americas/Asia/Europe/Middle East/Pacific Rim) and by environment (Cities/Coasts/Mountains/Plains/Deserts/Forests/Villages).
