At a conference on the Universals of language held in 1961, Roman Jakobson (1966: 274) stated that: We most urgently need a systematic world-wide mapping of linguistic structural properties: distinctive features, inherent and prosodic — their types of concurrence and concatenation; grammatical concepts and the principles of their expression. The primary and less difficult task would be to prepare a phonemic atlas of the world.
