Phylogenetic typology

1 code implementation18 Mar 2021 Gerhard Jäger, Johannes Wahle

In this article we propose a novel method to estimate the frequency distribution of linguistic variables while controlling for statistical non-independence due to shared ancestry.

Are Automatic Methods for Cognate Detection Good Enough for Phylogenetic Reconstruction in Historical Linguistics?

1 code implementation NAACL 2018 Taraka Rama, Johann-Mattis List, Johannes Wahle, Gerhard Jäger

We evaluate the performance of state-of-the-art algorithms for automatic cognate detection by comparing how useful automatically inferred cognates are for the task of phylogenetic inference compared to classical manually annotated cognate sets.
