Abstract [en]

Variety sampling aims at capturing as much of the world’s linguisticvariety as possible. The article discusses and compares two sampling methodsdesigned for variety sampling: the Diversity Value method, in which samplelanguages are picked according to the diversity found in family trees, and theGenus-Macroarea method, in which genealogical stratification is primarily basedon genera and areal stratification pays attention to the proportional representa-tion of the genealogical diversity of macroareas. The pros and cons of themethods are discussed, some additional features are introduced to the Genus-Macroarea method, and the ability of both methods to capture crosslinguisticvariety is tested with computerized simulations drawing on data inThe worldatlas of language structuresdatabase.
