  Baltic Sea - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Finland and the Baltic states were the last in Europe to be converted into Christianity in the Northern Crusades: the former in the 12th century by the Swedes and the latter in the 13th century by the Germans.
The flow of the rivers into the Baltic is quite high, however, and as a result the salinity of water in the Baltic Sea is somewhere between freshwater and seawater, known as brackish water.
The Baltic Sea is surrounded by countries practicing a lot of agriculture, which leads into a lot of fertilizers getting into the sea (also, the city of Saint Petersburg still doesn't process much of its waste water), and therefore every summer a lot of algae blooming takes place.

 Baltic Sea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
In the Germanic languages except English East Sea is used: Danish (Østersøen), Dutch (Oostzee), German (Ostsee), Norwegian (Østersjøen), and Swedish (Östersjön); in addition, Finnish, a Balto-Finnic language has calqued the Swedish term as Itämeri, disregarding the geography; the sea is west of Finland.
The Baltic Sea's salinity is much lower than the ocean's, as a result of abundant freshwater runoff from the surrounding land; indeed, runoff contributes roughly 1/40th its total volume.(Alhonen 88) It varies from 0.1 percent in the north to 0.6-0.8 percent in the center.
The low salinity of the Baltic sea has led to the evolution of many slightly divergent species, such as the Baltic Sea herring, which is a smaller variant of the Atlantic herring.

 Baltic Sea Marine Environment Bibliography and Database   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The Baltic Marine Environment Bibliography is produced from contributions prepared by the all the surrounding Baltic Sea states.
The Baltic Marine Environment Bibliography obtains much of the material directly from authors, institutes and libraries and to a lesser extent from monitoring journals and serials, which is the main method in case of large international databases.
This means that the content of the Baltic Marine Environment Bibliography is unique and as such it is an important source of information for marine researchers and completes the information received from other information sources.

The mainstay of the department remains its many courses in Russian language and culture, followed by a fairly even balance of courses in Slavic languages and culture, Chinese language and culture, Japanese language and culture, Celtic languages and culture, the English language (especially as a second language), and linguistics.
Some audiovisual materials dealing with language are bought for the library, but it is not an area of large emphasis because a language lab on campus also acquires audiovisual materials on language learning.
While many courses involve modern languages, the area of general linguistics studies languages over time and the antecedents of modern language, so that archaic languages and philology are required.

 Cover Pages: Code for the Representation of the Names of Languages. From ISO 639, revised 1989.
The two-character language codes of ISO 639 are relevant to SGML encoding in two respects.
Second, the WSD (Writing System Declaration) implemented in the Text Encoding Initiative uses the [two-character] language code of ISO 639 (as amended) as a language.code attribute of the nat.language declaration, specifying the language in which the WSD is written.
The two-character language codes of ISO 639 are recognized as being inadequate for use as SGML language attributes when tagging text, viz, for use as global lang attributes attached to any element to identify the language of the text element or a language shift.

 languagehat.com: LOWLANDS LANGUAGES.
Also included are those languages that descended from autochtonous Lowlands languages and are used elsewhere; for example, Afrikaans, Lowlands-based emigrant languages, pidgins and creoles, and also English and Scots.
So, the list turned out to be a bad fit for me. I wouldn't mind finding something where one could take baby steps in German and in Dutch without being distracted by long analyses of (and in!) Luxembourgish.
The list would then need to be renamed to "Germanic-L," and there are plenty of lists of that sort around already.

 Bodies of Water - Baltic and Balkan Languages - Indo-European - A. Breidaks
A number of Baltic terms for bodies of water (especially rivers) stem from the most ancient stratum of Indo-European hydronymy.
The attention of linguists has particularly been devoted to the Eastern regions of this area, namely to the relation between Baltic and Illyrian (as well as to the Eastern neighbors of the latter, the Thracians and Dacians).
It must be said that about one-third of all of the river names in Lettgallia (Latvia) which have been retained from the Indo-European pantheon have definite corresponding terms in ancient Balkan (and partly also in Central European and Asia Minor) hydronymy and generally in onomastics.
