From Laws in Quantitative Linguistics

Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to the Encyclopedia of Linguistic Laws and the Laws in Quantitative Linguistics (LQL) server. The quest for laws of language and text during the last decades has resulted in a wealth of law hypotheses and accepted laws. It has become difficult to achieve a systematic overview of the relevant studies and findings. Therefore, we have launched a project with the aim to collect as completely and systematically as possible the corresponding literature and to form a handbook on this basis. As this endeavor will take some time, it seems advantageous to set up a wiki which will serve as a growing online-encyclopedia and as the basis for book publications. We hope that many users will support us with this work.

The resources for this project are limited to the time and effort we can devote to it ourselves. Therefore, to avoid the effort of finding and removing unwanted (possibly misleading or inapropriate) contributions to this wiki, LQL can be changed or added by authorised editors only. Everyone who wants to help us is invited to send us contributions via email. Thank you for your support.

The wiki which is used for LQL has been set up by Götz Burger. We would like to express our thanks for his valuable support to this project.
