Crosslinguistic Investigations in Quantitative Syntax (CLIQS)
This is code for studying quantitative syntax using dependency corpora.
It is written for Python 3.5, and has been tested to work in Python 2.7.
pip install -r requirements.txt for basic functionality.
pip install -r optrequirements.txt for optional dependencies used for parallelization and visualization.
The list of langs can be found at
To compare dependency length in some languages to random and minimal baselines, run:
python run_mindep.py run lang1 lang2 ... langn > result_raw.csv.
Then postprocess the resulting csv:
python run_mindep.py postprocess result_raw.csv > result.csv.
Then you can run the various R scripts starting in
mindep_ to analyze the results and generate figures.
