Abstract

We present some methodological guidelines for analyzing linguistic dissimilarity matrices, in particular graph-theoretic procedures and multivariate methods. We discuss the usefulness and limitations of phonological data besides lexical data as the basis of linguistic classification from data analysis procedures.
