Ughh

Sometimes, upgrading this small little thing over here sets of a chain of dominoes of DOOM that breaks everything (well, the stuff that counts, namely CALS) for hours. On the upside, we're now running on a newer version of the database. On the downside, the main site (cals.nu) still flakes out for no reason.

New address!

Try accessing CALS through the new domain name! (It might not have spread to your corner of the world yet though, the Big Red Button was just pressed...) It's not the best domain-name for the job, as those are being squatted, but it is short and sweet and only two parts long.

What defines your conlang?

By adding your language here, and answering the questions by choosing a single value for each relevant WALS-feature (e.g. it's not a goal to answer every single one of them!), you might discover new things in your conlang, or grammar gaps that need to be filled somehow. By reading the descriptions of each feature at WALS, you also get a crash course in linguistic typology and universals – but be warned, some of those papers are overly scholarly...
