Typology of language use: quantitative investigations of discourse from endangered languages


This project investigates striking similarities in information management across under-studied, non-European languages with varying grammatical patterns. Employing an innovative quantitative methodology to the study of natural language usage, this is a foundational research project in the emergent field of text-based language typology.

This research project by Stefan Schnell is funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award 2012-2015).
