Towards a Cross-Linguistic Production Data Archive: Structure and Exploration
The present paper presents the structure of a cross-linguistic database of production data. The database contains annotated texts collected from a sample of fifteen different languages by means of identical data gathering methods, which are designed to enable studies on typology and universals of information structure. The special property of this database is that it combines the features of a natural language corpus and the features of a typological database. The challenge for the exploration interface is to provide user-friendly support for exploiting this particular type of resource, thus facilitating empirical generalizations about the collected data in the individual languages and comparison among them.
