Tools

  • The Anaphora Typology Database of the Utrecht institute of Linguistics OTS. The Anaphora Typology project is surveying the binding properties of reflexives and reciprocals. The database is focused on reflexives, although some information is also provided on pronouns and reciprocals. It is currently under construction, and only presents preliminary data from a few languages.
  • The Intercontinental Dictionary Serie (IDS Project). General Editor: Bernard Comrie (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology). The purpose of the IDS is to establish a database where lexical material across the continents is organized in such a way that comparisons can be made. Historical studies, comparative, and theoretical linguistic research can be based on this documentation. The purpose also contributes to preserving information on the little-known and "non-prestigious" languages of the world, many of which are becoming extinct.
  • Language Typology Database (Caen). Database by CRISCO (Centre de Recherche Inter-langues sur la Signification en Contexte), organised according to: name of language and language code (SIL code and ISO code), name of country and country code, language families and groups, distribution of languages by country, official/national/regional languages by country, typological properties.
  • The Leipzig Glossing Rules: Conventions for interlinear morpheme-by-morpheme glosses. The Leipzig Glossing Rules have been developed jointly by the Department of Linguistics of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology (Bernard Comrie, Martin Haspelmath) and by the Department of Linguistics of the University of Leipzig (Balthasar Bickel). They consist of ten rules for the "syntax" and "semantics" of interlinear glosses, and an appendix with a proposed "lexicon" of abbreviated category labels.
  • Reduplication database. (Institute of Linguistics, Univ-Graz). The objective of the Graz Database on Reduplication is to provide access to reduplication data of the languages of the world. It intends to provide considerable examples described in terms of phonology and morphology, together with information on semantics, diachrony, and productivity. The Database is intended to furnish substantial information on matters from a variety of theoretical approaches. 
  • Surrey Morphology Group Database. (University of Surrey). The Surrey Morphology Group offers free online databases about linguistic phenomena such as agreement, defectiveness, deponency, suppletion, syncretism, etc.
  • Typological Database of Intensifiers and Reflexives (TDIR). (Universität Jena, Freie Universität Berlin). The database provides information on intensifiers and reflexives as well as on some related domains of grammar such as the middle voice and scalar focus particles. It currently contains information from more than a hundred languages and approximately 600 examples. The data have been obtained from both native speaker consultation and literature on the relevant topics and languages.
  • The Universals Archive (Universität Konstanz). (Fachbereich Sprachwissenschaft of the Universität Konstanz). The Universals Archive represents the main result of the"Sprachbaupläne" project, which aim was to collect and document linguistic universals. It is available in the form of a searchable database, enabling its on-line users to retrieve universals in terms of any of the individual words or combinations of words that occur in their formulation or in their documentation. Browsing is also possible.

  • Linguistic Typlogy (reserved access to Ca' Foscari users)
    Edito
    r: De Gruyter
    Years: 1997 to present
    "Linguistic Typology aims to distinguish itself as a forum for the typological community, catering to its special professional needs. In particular, these concern the empirical dimensions of the typological enterprise and the ensuing demands to coordinate research and keep track of a profusion of data and results".
