Different languages, similar encoding efficiency: Comparable information rates across the human communicative niche
Human languages encode similar average information rates (~39 bits/s) despite their remarkable differences. Language is universal, but it has few indisputably universal characteristics, withExpand

Bridging phonological system and lexicon: Insights from a corpus study of functional load
TLDR
We quantitatively characterize the relationships between phonological components (segments, stress and tones) by estimating their role at the lexical level. Expand

A Quantitative and Typological Approach to Correlating Linguistic Complexity
The equal complexity hypothesis states that "all human languages are equally complex" (Bane, 2008). Menzerath's law is well-known for explaining the phenomenon of selfregulation in phonology: "theExpand

Investigating the "Hidden" Structure of Phonological Systems *
Observed phonological systems are only a very small subset of what is theoretically conceivable considering the possibility of human vocal tract. In other words, given the number of possible phoneticExpand
