Searchable Index Diachronica

Index Diachronica is a list of sound changes from many, many, many, many different languages. However, it is large, and it doesn't use Unicode, making it hard to search for specific sounds. Therefore, I made a Unicode PDF, and also an HTML version (since I know at least Apple's Preview has trouble searching for certain Unicode characters (like ʷ) even if a document is in Unicode), and also made a search tool. (Note that I did not make the Index, I only converted it to HTML and made the search tool.)

(There still may be bugs to work out.)

Download the Unicode PDF (10.2) (TeX source file, use with xelatex; view in browser)

Browse the Index (HTML, all in one page, 10.2)

Search for a sound (10.2)

Click a sound below to see all sound changes to and from that sound. (Other mentions of a sound are not included.) For letters with diacritics or modifiers (e.g., kː), click the main letter (k) or the modifier/diacritic (ː), and there will be a link to every variant of that letter; or see the full table. For diphthongs, click a vowel and there will be links to every diphthong involving that vowel.
