The Surrey Morphology Group is pleased to announce the launch of the Surrey Lexical Splits Database, available at https://lexicalsplitsdb.surrey.ac.uk/. The database offers a novel perspective on morphological typology, charting the range of possible deviations from canonical paradigms, and comprises 300 records taken from 50 languages, covering 27 families. Interactive visualisations of fieldwork data from Chichimec (Oto-Manguean, Mexico) and Skolt Saami (Finno-Ugric, Finland) are accessible through https://lexicalsplits.surrey.ac.uk/. The implications of the Chichimec data for morphological theory are reported in https://muse.jhu.edu/article/785538
