Abstract

We continue some steps showing the distinctions and proximities of languages over statistical facts as it has been pioneered previously [3]. In the paper, we construct the homology tree from the distance matrix yielded from the transformation of some statistical aspects of the empirical observations into binary sequences in order to conform to the concepts of memetics [2]. The resulting visualizations show interesting facts and possibly challenge some further steps for the advancement of our understanding to the discourse of languages and ethnicities.
