IME Ray Brown is the best dictionary of linguistic terms on-line. He's usually on-line but not always. I think Ray is probably available about as often as the SIL Glossary, so there's no distinct advantage either way as regards availability. Response times are usually much quicker with the SIL Glossary than with Ray. So in fact I use the SIL Glossary more, since quick response is often what I want. Ray is usually more complete than the SIL Glossary, and has the very distinct advantage of being interactive.
