This paper discusses the place of research on the use of information systems technologies to store and explore linguistic data. As such, it may be regarded as small contribution to the philosophy of science. After a section on the nature of informatics in general, some general principles will be applied to computer-assisted linguistic studies, and a number of examples will be provided to illustrate the concept of linguistic informatics.
