A Phylogenetic African Language Model

A language model is a probability distribution over words or word sequences. It gives the probability of a certain word sequence having a “valid” meaning.

Tracing language evolution and its cross-tribal relationships, the Phylogenetic Model is a core framework in the African Language Model Project. Inspired by biological evolution, it explores how languages evolve through changes in tonalities, phonetics, syntax, and semantics.
