TuLeD (Tupían Lexical Database) is being compiled within the CrossLingference project. It is the first part of TuLaR (Tupían language resources) to be published online. It offers a comprehensive list of concepts comprising both Swadesh and Tupían culturally relevant items for all branches of the language family. Semantic fields for the concepts are taken from The World Loanword Database (WOLD) , and each concept is linked to a Concepticon id. The data is presented in a unified encoding to be used in historical and computational linguistics working on language evolution and language contact.
The current release version (0.8) includes 392 concepts across 74 languages, living and extinct, with a coverage ranging up to 99% .
