CLICS — Database of Cross-Linguistic Colexifications
- CLICS is a database of automatically extracted, cross-linguistically occurring cases of colexification ("polysemies" in a broad sense).
- The official version of CLICS has now been officially launched. You can find the database at http://clics.lingpy.org.
- For the database, form-meaning pairs taken from three different sources were combined, yielding a total of more than 1000 concepts translated into more than 200 languages covering more than 40 language families.
- For details on the data and examples on what can be done with it, please check out the paper by List, Terhalle, and Urban (2013).
- For a preliminary version of the data underlying CLICS, check out the supplementary material accompanying the paper.
- If you want to check how far we are from the first official release, you can check out our GitHub repository.
