Something to begin with:

  • each node is a language (Wikimedia language codes are used);
  • each language points towards the three most similar languages to it,
  • in terms of the overlap in the respective language labels across >57M Wikidata items:
  • (explanation: for each language we search what WD items have a label in it,
  • then: similarity between two languages == Jaccard distance between two binary vectors of length approx. 57M each).

Mapping WDCM item re-use statistics onto languages now.
