Welcome to LanguageLink
The LanguageLink server hosts a number of linguistic databases
and resources, including the following:
- The Typological Database System (TDS)
provides an online
interface to multiple independently developed typological databases, allowing
unified queries supported by an integrated ontology.
The TDS project is scheduled to
run until December 2009. It has been carried out by a research group of the
Netherlands Graduate School of Linguistics (LOT), with members representing
the Universities of Amsterdam, Leiden, Nijmegen and Utrecht. The TDS project
was funded by the Netherlands Organization of Scientific Research (NWO) and by
the participating Universities.
- The Anaphora Typology database of the
Utrecht institute of Linguistics
OTS. The Anaphora Typology project is surveying the binding properties of
reflexives and reciprocals, which we refer to as local
coreference strategies, or just strategies for short. This database
is focused on reflexives, although some information is also provided on
pronouns and reciprocals. The database is currently under construction, and
only presents preliminary data from a few languages.
The Anaphora Typology database is part of the project
syntactic encoding of anaphoric relations, a Utrecht University
- The Topic-focus database is part of
the project The
typology of focus and topic: A new approach to the discourse-syntax
interface, carried out at the University of Amsterdam. Only
password-controlled access is granted at this time.
- The Berlin-Utrecht Reciprocals Survey is the
database server for the project
A typology of reciprocal markers: Analysis and documentation, a
collaboration between the Utrecht
institute of Linguistics OTS and the
Free University of Berlin.
The project has collected information on the syntactic and semantic
properties of reciprocal constructions.
- Linguistics Online (LiOn) is a collection of
on-line exercises and other instructional materials for beginning
the individual project pages for contact information.
has the general oversight of the server.
