Network analysis of languages

I’m very excited to have played a small part in new work led by UNC Psychology graduate student Josh Jackson and others in Kristen Lindquist‘s lab that appeared last week in Science analyzing patterns of colexification through network analysis. Congratulations to Josh, Kristen, and everybody else involved on the very interesting work and all of the great attention this paper has been getting!
