Title: The Use of Databases in Cross-Linguistic Studies
Edited By: Martin Everaert
Simon Musgrave
Alexis Dimitriadis

Series Title: Empirical Approaches to Language Typology [EALT] 41
Description:

This book promotes the development of linguistic databases by describing a
number of successful database projects, focusing especially on
cross-linguistic and typological research. It has become increasingly clear
that ready access to knowledge about cross-linguistic variation is of great
value to many types of linguistic research. Such a systematic body of data
is essential in order to gain a proper understanding of what is truly
universal in language and what is determined by specific cultural settings.
Moreover, it is increasingly needed as a tool to systematically evaluate
contrasting theoretical claims. The book includes a chapter on general
problems of using databases to handle language data and chapters on a
number of individual projects.
