1. Description

Lexibank datasets are presented in the Cross-Linguistic Data Format (CLDF).[1]

Phonological and lexical features are automatically computed in Lexibank.[2]

The datasets are publicly accessible and are archived at Zenodo[3] and are also publicly available on GitHub.[4] Lexibank is also part of the Cross-Linguistic Linked Data project. All of the datasets are released under the CC BY 4.0 license.

Applications of the database include historical linguistics and comparative phonology.

2. List of Datasets

The following is a list of Lexibank (version 0.2) datasets as of 17 June 2022.[5]
