Technical Workshops

The Technical Workshops deal with managing and processing of linguistic data, especially those obtained through original field research.

Data management is an important issue for all field linguists, for the data are their original. In the case of languages with small number of speakers, the data are especially important, because they may be the only existing linguistic data of the language. Managing data involves multiple tasks, for example, digitizing analog audio-visual, photo, or written data, providing meta-data and annotation, converting data into standard format (such as Unicode font).

The workshops introduce the use of softwares, such as the following:

  • Toolbox / Shoebox (SIL’s data management software)
  • ELAN (software for adding annotation to audio-visual data)
