About this database

Enhanced Electronic Grammars (EEG) features comprehensive descriptions of languages from around the world. Through this unique Online Reference Work, full grammars are made available together in an interlinked and semantically-annotated format, allowing granular access to the grammatical data and enabling cross-language research of several grammars at the same time. In addition to cross-linguistic queries, each grammar can also be read and researched individually.

Enhanced Electronic Grammars is updated biannually, integrating several new grammar publications each year for even more extensive cross-linguistic research.

Grammars of the following languages are currently available in EEG:

Aguaruna (Iiniá Chicham), Alto Perené, Bangime, Bardi, Basque, Belep, Berbice Dutch, Bunan, Cavineña, Coastal Marind, Daakaka, Domari, Emai, Eton, Fa d’Ambô, Goemai, Hinuq, Hup, Jamsay, Kakataibo, Karbi, Kayardild, Khatso, Kolyma Yukaghir, Kulina, Kunbarlang, Kuuk Thaayorre, Kwaza, Lao, Lavukaleve, Lezgian, Madurese, Mani, Mapuche, Mian, Mina, Mongsen Ao, Neverver, Qaqet, Qiang, Saramaccan Creole, Savosavo, Seenku, Sierra Popoluca, Siraya, Teiwa, Tommo So, Toqabaqita, Tundra Nenets, Urarina, Vaeakau-Taumako, Wandala, Xong.

In 2022, grammars of the following languages will be added to the database:

Afrikaans, Gurindji, Kilmeri, Ngardi, Slave

Outlook for 2023:
