A collection of 51 languages of Myanmar and surrounding areas (the "Greater Burma Zone"), listing the systems of personal pronouns with some additional information and metadata about the language, including the source. This dataset was used in Müller & Weymuth (2017) to show the correlation between the societal structure (hierarchical vs. non-hierarchical) and the types of personal pronoun systems (hierarchical vs. grammatical).

The *.zip file contains 53 files, most *.docx, and some *.odt, and a template file. It also contains an R script that we used to produce the map shown in the paper. This R file is rather crude and many things were entered manually instead of reading it automatically from the dataset.
