Members of the Linguistic Convergence Laboratory participated in the webinar “Languages, Dialects and Isoglosses of Anatolia, the Caucasus and Iran”
The sixth session of the webinar “Languages, Dialects and Isoglosses of Anatolia, the Caucasus and Iran”, organized by Anaïd Donabedian (Inalco UMR SeDyL) and Pollet Samvelian (Sorbonne-Nouvelle UMR CERMI), hosted a talk by Chiara Naccarato, Samira Verhees, Michael Daniel and Timofey Mukhin. The speakers introduced to the audience one of the ongoing projects of the Linguistic Convergence Laboratory: the Typological Atlas of the Languages of Daghestan (TALD). The atlas is a tool for the visualization of the areal scope of linguistic structures in the languages of Daghestan. During the talk, the TALD team introduced the philosophy behind the project, its main goals and possible implementations. They discussed how the data are collected and stored in databases which are then used to generate maps. They also discussed the latest developments concerning map visualization, and finally presented the list of topics covered within the project, as well as the new features that are currently being developed.
