There’s a new online database of structures being developed. This from the LinguistList:
Dear LinguistList Readers,
We are pleased to announce SSWL, an open-ended database of the syntactic
structures of the world’s languages:
(alternatively, Google: sswl database)
Please feel free to go to the site and play around with it, doing searches
and browsing the languages and properties.
Ultimately, we hope to fill the database with thousands of grammatical
properties and thousands of languages all provided by members of the wider
If you have any questions or comments, please send them to:
Department of Linguistics
I will have more to comment on this once I’ve played with it a bit more.
