Blogpost on Isogloss Maps and Hypergraphs

Isogloss maps are a popular format for data-display in analyses in historical linguistics and dialectology. Only recently, when reading Newman's book on networks, I realized that isogloss maps are essentially hypergraphs and that hypergraphs are essentially bipartite networks. What this means is discussed in some detail in a recent blog post I wrote for David Morrison's blog The Genealogical World of Phylogenetic Networks, which you can find here.
