The LLOW-database is work in progress and this version is restricted to what you see and what you get. The ultimate aim is to arrive at an extensive description of all languages of the world on the basis of linguistic-genetic (language families, clusters, ...) and sociolinguistic (status as official language, minority language, ...) criteria as well as social-, geopolitical and geographical parameters (number of speakers, geographical extension, ...). In addition to this literature references, internet-links, short texts on the individual language families and groups as well as text- and audio samples of individual languages will be offered.
