New blog posts and new annotation tool

Two new blogposts have appeared in this week, completing the typical series of blog posts for March. The first post is an English version of my German post published earlier this month, dealing with the evolution of personal names. Titled "Evolution unchained: The development of person names and the limits of sequences" here.

The second post presents a new rhyme annotation tool, called RhyAnT, which I managed to prepare in a first draft version. This post, published with our blog on Computer-Assisted Language Comparison in Practice can be found here.

The rhyme annotation tool itself is still in flux, although a first draft version is already available at https://digling.org/calc/rhyant/. I hope to finish a stable version soon, so we can start on working towards a cross-linguistic database of rhymed poetry.
