The World Atlas of Language Structures (WALS) is a large database of structural (phonological, grammatical, lexical) properties of languages gathered from descriptive materials (such as reference grammars) by a team of 55 authors.
LOD-a-lot democratizes access to the Linked Open Data (LOD) Cloud by serving more than 28 billion unique triples from 650K datasets from a single self-indexed file. This corpus can be queried online with a sustainable Linked Data Fragments interface, or it can be downloaded and consumed locally: LOD-a-lot is easy to deploy and only requires limited resources (524 GB of disk space and 15.7 GB of RAM), enabling web-scale repeatable experimentation and research from a high-end laptop.
