Message 2: XTone Crosslinguistic Tonal Database
From: David Mortensen <dmortsocrates.berkeley.edu>
Subject: XTone Crosslinguistic Tonal Database
We wish to announce the public availability of XTone: the Crosslinguistic Tonal
Database. It is available to the general linguistic public at
The purpose of XTone is to provide a forum to which interested researchers can
contribute and access basic descriptive characterizations of as many tone systems
as possible. The database has been set up in such a way that researchers can
enter and query data in simple prose with a minimum of effort.
Although a later phase of the project will further encode the data for
cross-linguistic comparision, the query system currently in place is
designed to provide an immediate benefit to those interested in
consulting the growing number of entries.
This project is expected to provide an important cross-linguistic 'clearing house'
of tonal information for descriptive, historical, typological and theoretical
studies of tone and prosodic systems in general.
XTone is the project of Larry Hyman, David Allison, and David Mortensen of
University of California, Berkeley. The web interface and database design
are by David Allison.
