Description:
The Surrey Syncretisms Database encodes information on syncretism in the inflectional morphology of 30 genetically and geographically diverse languages, representing such morphosyntactic features as case, person, number and gender. Syncretism is defined as when some set of words fail to distinguish morphosyntactic feature values which we believe, based on language-internal criteria, to be underlyingly present (for example, in Latin, the dative and ablative cases may be distinct in some contexts but collapsed into a single form in others). For each language all instances of syncretism are recorded. The construction of this database was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (U.K.) under grant number R000237939.
