How to work with WALS data in CLDF

This code example accomanies a blog post published as part of the blog "Computer-Assisted Langauge Comparison in Practice" (https://calc.hypotheses.org).

In order to get started, install the WALS dataset in CLDF format with the help of pip (ideally, make sure to use a fresh virtual environment!).

$ pip install -e git+https://github.com/cldf-datasets/wals.git@v2020#egg=cldfbench_wals

Once this has been done, you should be able to run the script wals.py by simply typing:

See the blog at https://calc.hypotheses.org for details.

To run the code, just type:

$ python code.py

Waterman-Eggert algorithm for Sentence Alignment

This is a short patch for LingPy's Waterman-Eggert implementation and an illustration how the algorithm can be used to carry out the alignment of two sentences provided in phonetic transcription in linguistics. To test this script, make sure to install LingPy and run the following in your terminal:

Automatic morpheme segmentation (Open problems in computational diversity linguistics 1)

This little repository contains the analyses I have done to test the Morfessor software on sparse data. It should be mentioned that I just used the defaults for the computation, so it is quite possible, that the results could be further enhanced.

Requirements

To install Morfessor, just type:

$ pip install morfessor
