Etymøn is an analysis and tracing tool for word origins in all languages. It will be used to review current etymological language families and if possible find new connections that were not already present in current taxonomy. It will accomplish this using a deep learning approach.

Etymøn will be a system that contains three main components: deep-learning, augmented-reality with object recognition, and generative dreaming. Etymøn bases most of its functionalities on the etymological map that will be generated by the deep learning algorithm. Etymøn system will include a palpable product in the end as an online application based on this etymological map. The system and its implementation will be broken down into three stages in respect to its components. Check out the website at

Data Use

We have scraped data from several etymology websites. You can find them helpful in your projects. You can find the scraped data in csv format in the data folder. You can also find the whole dataset that Etymøn uses in the releases.
