Linguistics, being an empirical science, focuses on explaining the properties of languages using various theoretical frameworks. However, the increase in computing power and the availability of storage in recent years has led to the emergence of a new kind of large-scale data, which was impossible to obtain and/or analyze even a couple of decades ago. In this talk, I will introduce you to some of the newest databases that are used by researchers to study cross-linguistic differences and show how the availability of such data is changing the theoretical foundations of linguistics.
