Hello,

I am writing to get some feedback/suggestion on an IGE grant proposal
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IEG/A_graphical_and_interactive_etymology_dictionary_based_on_Wiktionary>

I submitted to Wikimedia that might be of interest to the research
community.

I am working on an interactive visualization tool for etymological
relationships and I produced a demo of my interactive visualization
*etytree*:

http://www.epantaleo.com/2015/12/01/etymology-tree/

The aim of the application is to visualize - in one graph - the
etymology of all words deriving from the same ancestor. Users can
expand/collapse the tree to visualize what they are interested in. The
textual part attached to the graph can be easily translated in any
language and the app would become a multilingual resource. My idea is to
use dbnary's extraction-framework (for Wiktionary) and develop a
(possibly) smart pre-processing strategy to translate Wiktionary textual
etymology into a graph database of etymological relationships.

The database of etymological relationships will be available for the
community and can be used as a resource to study the history of
languages, how pronunciation evolved through time, and eventually how
semantics evolved through time.

The link to the grant proposal is

Feedback from the community is important to receive a grant from the
Wikimedia foundation so please leave a feedback there if you are
interested in the project.

Thanks a lot!

Ester Pantaleo
