GLOTTOMETRICSIssue 49, pp 66−86 (2020)


Soundcorrs is a small R library of functions intended to facilitate computer-aided analysis of sound correspondences between languages. It is not designed to draw its own conclusions, merely to automate labour-intensive tasks and furnish the linguist with sifted and processed data for him or her to interpret. To make use of its basic functionality, soundcorrs requires only a very rudimentary knowledge of R, and no understanding of statistics at all. More advanced functions can be accessed and more involved results obtained after only a brief course of the two.
