PARTICIPATION À PROJETS


 

The typology of wordhood and constituency

    This is a collaborative project between typologists, computational linguists and fieldworkers to describe and compare the results of constituency diagnostics across the languages of the world. The project involves developing a taxonomy of constituency diagnostics (morphosyntactic and phonological) and coding the results of these tests in terms of their span of application (roughly the size of the constituent they identify) and their degree of convergence with other tests. We compare the results across the languages of the study which has hitherto only involved indigenous languages of the Americas.
