How can I submit an article?
If you would like to submit an article to Omniglot, please read
the following guidelines:
- Articles should be related to language and/or culture. If you're not sure what to write about, have a look at the articles already on this site.
- If you write in a language I can't read, please provide a translation or summary in English - [my languages].
- There is no minimum or maximum length for an article, but if you need a guideline, 400-500 words would be fine.
- Articles should not be used primarily as a means of promoting a product or service, however you can mention language-related products and services within an article as examples, and include links to your website.
- Articles can include images, but try to keep the file sizes as small as possible.
- If you make references to websites, books, surveys or other publications, please provide links and citations.
- Remember that you are writing for a world-wide audience.
- If possible, please provide a summary of what the article is about in one sentence (this is for the page description and will appear in search engines)
