Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

The MultiTree project, a digital library of language
relationship hypotheses, has been supported through your
donations since 2008. These donations are greatly appreciated,
because they have allowed students to work on this project:


The MultiTree library has 1,015 language family trees that
are freely available to the public at http://multitree.org.
Our hyperbolic tree viewer allows one to visualize the language
relationships in a hierarchical tree view. The public may also
download, comment on, and compare the trees within the library.

The comparison feature's ability to display two hypotheses in
the same browser window is an important feature in our discipline,
where hypotheses for languages families can vary greatly depending
on the specialist and the time period in which they were written.
In addition to providing these hypotheses in accessible format,
MultiTree offers an impressive bibliography of sources for those
who are interested in learning more about a particular family.

The continued development and maintenance of MultiTree can only
happen with your ongoing support. Please donate today to ensure
that this resource is available for all to use:


Thank you so much for your continued support of
The LINGUIST List and MultiTree.

Kind regards,

Lwin Moe
MultiTree Team Leader
