CLICS — Database of Cross-Linguistic Colexifications
- CLICS is a database of automatically extracted, cross-linguistically occurring cases of colexification ("polysemies" in a broad sense).
- An updated version of CLICS is now available at http://clics.clld.org.
- For the database, form-meaning pairs taken from fifteen different sources were combined, yielding a total of more than 1500 concepts translated into more than 1000 languages.
- 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), and our more recent draft (accepted for publication with Linguistic Typology) by List et al. (2018).
- If you want to check data and code, see our GitHub repository.
