  "description": "<p>The work on this bibliographical database started when I was a member of the <a href=\"\">EvoClass</a> research project at Heinrich Heine University D&uuml;sseldorf. It is actually nothing more than a collection of all titles (currently 3335 entries, few have been removed, as they turned out to be invalid) which I stumbled over when pursuing my research in quantitative historical linguistics. The database thus mainly contains work on lexicostatistics, methodological aspects of the comparative method, and the application of biological methods in historical linguistics.</p>\n\n<p>The most recent version of the database can be accessed at <a href=\"\"></a>, here, I offer the database file in BibTex format, to make sure that different versions are being tracked.</p>",
