- Some typological aspects of nominal concord
- I am continuously building a typological sample of languages with what I (and others) call nominal concord.
- A version of the sample with 174 languages is archived here: https://shareok.org/handle/11244/320354. This sample is the basis for my 2019 LSA proceedings paper.
- If you’d like to contribute data to the project, please fill out this questionnaire (PDF | Online form).
- Concord and statistical modeling (collaboration with Kyle Mahowald)
- Together with Kyle Mahowald, thinking about interesting/complex questions about my typological concord data that can be answered with the power of statistical modeling.
- Presented at the LSA (with Dan Jurafsky): LSA 2021 slides
- Uses data from my 174-language sample to build a Bayesian model of the data,
- then samples from the posterior to investigate my “Concord Tendencies” from 2019 + an investigation of NP-internal word-order and concord
