ready Cross-Linguistic Data Formats

Abbreviation: CLDF


General Information
Cross-Linguistic Data Formats (CLDF) is a format for exchanging cross-linguistic data. CLDF provides modular specifications for common data types in language typology and historical linguistics, which are based on a shared data model and a formal ontology. The main type of cross-linguistic data relevant to this format is tabular data that is typically analysed using quantitative (automated) methods or made accessible using software tools like the `clld` framework, such as wordlists, structure datasets and simple dictionaries. Each CLDF dataset is described by a JSON metadata file according to Model for Tabular Data and Metadata on the Web (CSVW) tabular metadata specification.
