Files to help with contributing

We welcome contributions.

We have prepared a number of templates that will make contributions easier to assemble, and more likely to be more complete. Of course, we cannot forsee all of the interesting phenomena present in a language; in assembling the database, we have found our most useful data is the data that does not fit into a simple template. Nonetheless, it is useful to be certain that at least the basic information is included in a description.

The essential data will be included if contributions are advised by the following forms; all have the same essential information, though there is slightly less explanation on the Excel spreadsheet.

Word document (DOC, 98KB)

Excel spreadsheet (XLS, 34KB)

PDF file (PDF, 79KB)

Completed forms can be sent to us via email:


We also welcome suggestions for additional functionality, in the form of additional features to include.

We prefer to respond to queries in this way rather than addressing individual requests for information.
