IE-CoR: A New Breed of Databases on Cognate Relationships in ‘core’ vocabulary

IE-CoR is a new database of cognate relationships in Indo-European core (or basic) vocabulary. Superseding previous databases such as IELex by Michael Dunn (as used by Bouckaert et al. 2012, Chang et al. 2015), IE-CoR drastically increases the number of languages for a new set of 170 comparative concepts, enriched by additional information on particular varieties, including phonemic and phonetic transcriptions, and morphological information. Tailored for qualitative as well as quantitative research purposes, IE-CoR will be published in the form of Cross-Linguistic Data Formats (https://cldf.clld.org) and as a CLLD web application (https://clld.org).

Data are compiled through the CoR data-entry website, by a consortium of branch experts across Indo-European, working together with cross-family cognacy specialists. All contributors work to a new and very explicit set of IE-CoR protocols for lexeme and cognate determination, and an optimised reference set of 170 precisely (re)defined comparison meanings.

Please note: This database will be made publicly available upon publication of the first main phylogenetic analysis results calculated from the IE-CoR data set. Access is currently provided only to the research team members, and reviewers.
