The danger that awaits us on this path is multicollinearity, a condition in which independent variables used for prediction correlate with each other. Language variables rarely have random distribution. Morphology is related to syntax, syntax is related to semantics, semantics is related to morphology, and all of these variables are related to frequency. Thus, one of the variables in a multilevel profile is by necessity correlated to another variable within that profile. For example, the distribution of case endings is correlated with animacy, the distribution of semantic classes is correlated with frequency, the distribution of syntactic constructions is correlated with semantic classes, and so on.

1. Methodology of the study | 37 Fig. 4: Distribution of number of verbs with a fem:masc from 0 to 1 Once we have a fem:masc ratio for each verb it is possible to examine the distribution of ratios. 0 for the verb otvorit’sja ‘open’. In addition there are 51 verbs with a ratio of ∞ (verbs with no masculine past tense forms). The lowest available ratio is 0, and there are 46 verbs with this ratio. The data is skewed towards 0 (most of the verbs have a ratio between 0 and 1 and few verbs have a ratio more than 1).
