Message 2: Comparative Indoeuropean Data Corpus

Date: Sat, 08 Mar 1997 18:25:01 +2910
From: Paul Black <blackpNTU.EDU.AU>
Subject: Comparative Indoeuropean Data Corpus

A set of 200-item lexicostatistical lists for 95 Indoeuropean varieties 
is now available from the Linguistic Data Consortium in the US 
(http://www.ldc.upenn.edu/), currently at page: 

 http://www.ldc.upenn.edu/ldc/service/comp-ie/HEADPAGE.html

and in Australia from:

 http://www.ntu.edu.au/education/langs/ielex/HEADPAGE.html

This data has provided the basis for several publications, including:

 Dyen, Isidore, Joseph B. Kruskal & Paul Black. 1992. An Indoeuropean 
 classification: A lexicostatistical experiment. (Transactions of the 
 American Philosophical Society Vol. 82, Part 5.) American 
 Philosophical Society, Philadelphia. 

The data is accompanied by an annotated bibilography of lexicostatistics 
and by quantitative findings based on the data, including 
lexicostatistical percentages and estimates of relative time depths and 
replacement rates for meanings.

The data may be useful not only in reference the above monograph, 
but also as a basis for comparing the results of other approaches to 
lexicostatistics, such as the GLOTTO program of Jacques Guy discussed in 
LINGUIST Vol-5-630 at:
