Spanish... and Spanish linguistics

Hi all! My name is Kenni, and I have been watching this community for about a month now, and just joined today.

I am currently in university, and I just applied to go into a BA for Spanish. I am doing first year Spanish at the moment (and LOVE it) -and- I am in a Intro Linguistics course.

Im in a bit of a pickle for my Linguistics course, so maybe a few of you can point me in the right direction. We were assigned to do a research paper, and I asked my prof if I could do mine on Spanish linguistics, which he agreed to. Today I started to do my research for it, or should I say, attempted to. I have been having a tough time finding good resources that are not Wikipedia! Do any of you know some good linguistic websites or online journals/whatever that are focused, or at least touch on some aspects of Spanish linguistics? I would really appreciate this, it would be such a HUGE help.
