Survey of Language Development Data Sources


The three primary sources of ethno-linguistic data that Seed Company uses are Ethnologue, Joshua Project, and GRN’s Registry of Dialects.  Ethnologue is a list of the world’s languages.  Joshua Project is a list of people groups.  GRN is a list of dialects.

End-user support for all three is already integrated into 87/6, but lookup data is manually entered by a sysadmin behind the scenes.  It would be helpful if each was automatically loaded from the source, but with provision for the Field Coordinator to override the data if necessary.  Each is a many-to-many with the others.
