Corrections for genealogical data

The following changes of the genealogical data in WALS Online have just been put online:

  1. The genus Eastern Saharan has been renamed to Western Saharan.
  2. The genus Lule-Vilela has been renamed to Lule.
  3. The family Sko has been renamed to Skou and it’s genealogy rearranged:
    • The languages formerly listed under genus Eastern Sko are now listed as languages of the Serra Hills genus (Poko-Rawo, Womo).
    • The languages formerly listed under genus Serra Hills are now listed as languages of genus Western Skou (Dumo, Skou).
    • There is no genus “Eastern Sko(u)” anymore.
    • The language Sko has been renamed to Skou.

The URLs for the superseded genus and family names should redirect properly to the new ones.
