So, how far in depth do you go before you're 'done.'
There is a scientific approach to this if one has a tree or DAG with only
one root. Do we have this here?
Languages have roots, but language families have roots, too, and the families
of languages are in no way flat nor well-balanced.
Post this query to the wikidata endpoint and examine your results:
languageRootsQuery :: String
languageRootsQuery =
unlines ["SELECT ?language ?languageLabel ?root ?rootLabel",
"?parent ?parentLabel ?grand ?grandLabel ?great ?greatLabel ",
"?great2 ?great2Label ?nspeakers WHERE {",
"?language wdt:P31 wd:Q34770 .",
"?language wdt:P279 ?root.",
"OPTIONAL { ?root wdt:P279 ?parent.",
"?parent wdt:P279 ?grand.",
"?grand wdt:P279 ?great.",
"?great wdt:P279 ?great2 }.",
"?language wdt:P1098 ?nspeakers.",
"SERVICE wikibase:label {",
"bd:serviceParam wikibase:language \"en\" .",
"} ORDER BY ?nspeakers"]
-- The structure of this query is as follows:
data Language = Lang { lang, root :: String, nspeakers :: Integer,
parent, grand, great, great2 :: Maybe String }
deriving (Eq, Show)
instance FromJSON Language where
parseJSON = undefined
-- Now, here comes the fun part.
-- 0. Construct a graph of languages from the results returned.
type Root = String
data LanguageGraph = WhatDoesYourLanguageGraphLookLike
-- hint: maybe look at the Regressive Imagery Dictionary graph?
languageGraph :: [Language] -> LanguageGraph
languageGraph langs = undefined
-- 1. What is/are the root node(s)?
roots :: [Language] -> [Root]
roots langs = undefined
-- 2. Which languages are in the greatest depth?
type Depth = Int
deepest :: [Language] -> (Depth, [String])
deepest langs = undefined
-- 3. Enumerate the roots from start to that 'deepest' language
pathTo :: [Language] -> String -> [String]
pathTo langs lang = undefined
-- 4. which roots have the greatest breath?
type Breath = Int
bigBreath :: {- eheh -} [Language] -> (Breath, [Root])
bigBreath langs = undefined
-- 5. Which roots have the most descendents?
type Count = Int
bigFamily :: [Language] -> (Count, [Root])
bigFamily langs = undefined
-- 6. Which roots have the most speakers of the various languages?
mostSpeakers :: [Language] -> (Count, [Root])
mostSpeakers langs = undefined
-- Tomorrow we'll look at a language-tree visualization.
