Dear all

We are excited to introduce Humboldt, an online exploration tool for large-scale sociolinguistics. Humboldt allows you to explore lexical variation along several demographic dimensions (age, gender, and region) and get visualizations, statistical analysis, and maps.

Try it at http://www.languagevariation.com

Currently, we have data for Danish, Dutch, English, French, and German, but we are working on incorporating more languages and resources into Humboldt, and a way to search for lexico-syntactic patterns such as "as ADJ as NOUN". Stay tuned!
