    Department of Psychology, University of Auckland, Private Bag 92019, Auckland 1042, New Zealand
    Proc Biol Sci 277:2443-50. 2010
    ..Our results suggest that, while rates of vocabulary change are correlated between the two language families, the rates of evolution of typological features and structural subtypes show no consistent relationship across families...
  2. pmc Does horizontal transmission invalidate cultural phylogenies?
    Simon J Greenhill
    Department of Psychology, University of Auckland, Auckland 1142, New Zealand
    Proc Biol Sci 276:2299-306. 2009
    ..Our results demonstrate that realistic levels of reticulation between cultures do not invalidate a phylogenetic approach to cultural and linguistic evolution...
  3. pmc How accurate and robust are the phylogenetic estimates of Austronesian language relationships?
    Simon J Greenhill
    Department of Psychology, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand
    PLoS ONE 5:e9573. 2010
    ..The results show that the Austronesian language phylogenies are highly congruent with the traditional subgroupings, and the date estimates are robust even when calculated using a restricted set of historical calibrations...

    ..These methods are then used to compare the extent to which lexical evolution is tree-like in different parts of the world and to evaluate the coherence of cultural and linguistic lineages...
