Dear LINGTYP Readers,
We are pleased to announce SSWL, an open-ended
database of the syntactic structures of the world's languages:
(alternatively, Google: sswl database)
SSWL is a searchable database that allows users to discover
which properties characterize a language (morphological,
syntactic, and semantic), as well as how these properties
relate across languages. It's query interface allows literally
millions of queries.
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 linguistic community.
If you have any questions or comments, or if you are interested
in becoming a language expert or property author, please send
requests to: linguisticexplorer at gmail.com
