MultiTree


MultiTree, a three-year project, is creating a digital library of scholarly hypotheses about language relationships and subgroupings. This information is being organized in a searchable database with a web interface, and each hypothesis is presented graphically as an interactive hyperbolic display of a family tree, accompanied by information on all of the languages involved and the authors and bibliographical sources of the hypothesis.


MultiTree will interact with the LL-MAP Project, a geolinguistic database which will provide users a fully functional Geographical Information System (GIS) through which linguistic data--including subgrouping information--can be viewed in its geographical context. Both these databases will be integrated with other existing LINGUIST List databases, providing access to a wealth of information on related books, articles, dissertations, and conferences. MultiTree is funded by a National Science Foundation grant (BCS 04040000).
