Updates to some language locations

Our editorial policy for WALS Online distinguishes between two kinds of errata.

  1. Errata in what we consider the original contribution of WALS, i.e. feature values assigned to languages;
  2. Errata in the additional data we present, like bibliographic references, locations of languages, genealogical data, etc.

While errata of the first kind will be collected until a new edition of WALS Online is published (planned every year), errata of the second kind will be fixed right away. We will document these changes in this blog.

Last week we updated the locations of five languages: Cheyenne, Kamaiurá, Shambala, Trumai and Waurá. Find the details here.
