Borrowing Detection (phylogeny)

class, tree=None, paps='pap', ref='cogid', tree_calc='neighbor', output_dir=None, **keywords)

Basic class for calculations using the TreBor method.


dataset : string

Name of the dataset that shall be analyzed.

tree : {None, string}

Name of the tree file.

paps : string (default=”pap”)

Name of the column that stores the specific cognate IDs consisting of an arbitrary integer key and a key for the concept.

ref : string (default=”cogid”)

Name of the column that stores the general cognate ids (the “reference” of the analysis).

tree_calc : {‘neighbor’,’upgma’} (default=’neighbor’)

Select the algorithm to be used for the tree calculation if no tree is passed with the file.

missing : int (default=-1)

Specify how missing data should be handled. If set to -1, missing data can account for both presence or absence of a cognate set in the given language. If set to 0, missing data is treated as absence.

degree : int (default=100)

The degree which is chosen for the projection of the tree layout.
