CHIELD is a searchable database of causal hypotheses in evolutionary linguistics. It is currently under development.

Why is this website so terrible?

Sorry! It's under construction! You can find out more by emailing Sean Roberts.

Why is my hypothesis not in the database?

Oops! We're still coding documents. You can add it yourself if you like. Here's how to add data.

My hypothesis is coded incorrectly!

Oh no! You can edit the coding or discuss it through github. See the document page for your hypothesis.

Can I use the data/images in my paper?

Yes! CHIELD data/images can be used for free under a CC-BY license. The about page has more information on how to cite CHIELD.

I want one of these for my field!

Sure. The source code is available on GitHub, or email Sean Roberts.
