Linguistic metadata is very important for using linguistic data. The linguistic metadata of DiACL can be achieved in various ways. Via the
Language Index page,
you can download all metadata of the database as json/csv, or the data for each language (icon in the right-most column). This metadata includes name, ISO 693-3 code, Glottocode, alternative names, location (focal point), time frame, language area, reliability, and associated tree node.
Family information of the database can be achieved in JSON format via the Language Tree page, which gives all family trees (json icon on top), or by family (in the drop-down menu for each family).
Language metadata can also be achived via DiACL data for CLICS, published by Rzymski et al (2019) and stored as a Zenodo library, which gives the equivalent glottonames, glottocodes and families for most (but not all) DiACL languages. Latest version (3.0) is found here.
