Syntactic Structures of the World's Languages (SSWL)
SSWL is a searchable database that allows users to discover which properties (morphological,
syntactic, and semantic) characterize a language, as well as how these properties relate across
languages. This system is designed to be free to the public and open-ended. Anyone can use
the database to perform queries. The help materials for the database include guidelines for
coding data from the perspective of the language expert and from that of the typologist.
You will find Guidelines for Language Experts and Guidelines for Property Authors.
