Type-token ration and morphological complexity of languages

What is it about?

The paper compares different ways of estimating morphological complexity of a set of languages with different data. We show that type-token ratio, an easily countable ratio, reveals morphological complexity as well as more complex measures

Why is it important?

This paper confirms earlies results with smallish samples of data with larger samples.

This publication was kind of continuation to our earlier work, and it it also uses more measures
