XLingPaper

XLingPaper is a way to author and archive linguistic papers or books using XML. Many of us prefer writing XLingPaper files with the XMLmind XML Editor. It makes writing XML much easier than other XML-oriented editors we've used.

This project contains not only the XLingPaper files, but also the configuration files for using XLingPaper with the XMLmind XML Editor.

 

The listed interface languages are for the XMLmind XML Editor.  The XLingPaper-specific dialogs and prompts

PrimerPrep

The PrimerPrep program is designed to help you:

  • analyze texts in a language to discover the words and letters used in the language, and how frequently they occur
  • specify what to analyze, by selecting which words to analyze, how to count them, and how to break them apart (with affixes)
  • provide a suggested teaching order, i.e. the order in which these letters might be introduced in a primer, and show you what words from your texts are available in each lesson
  • modify the order of letters in the

COG

Cog is a tool for comparing languages using lexicostatistics and comparative linguistics techniques. It automates the process of comparing word lists from different language varieties. This is an alpha test version, so not ready for full use;.
 
The webpage includes a demonstration video on the program. 

 

Render

What is Render?

Render is an oral Bible translation software developed and tested by three partnering agencies: Seed Company, Pioneer Bible Translators and Faith Comes By Hearing.

Translating with Render

Render is a software that guides oral communicators in producing oral Scripture for their own language group. One or more (up to four) audio recordings are pre-loaded into Render to act as references for a new translation. A translator or translation team listens to the source languages, translates orally into the target language and records the new translation...

Bloom

Learning to read takes books. Learning to read well, and developing a love of reading, takes lots of books.  Books at all different skill levels. But how are low-literacy language communities ever to get all those books in their language?  They can do it with Bloom.

Bloom uses collections of "shell books" that come with multiple source languages. Read the ones you understand, type in a translation in your language, and you're done!

SayMore

Recording speakers of the world’s languages is fun and rewarding, but keeping all the resulting files and meta data organized?  SayMore makes that part fun, too.

AMPLE

SUMMARY:  A morphological parser for linguistic exploration

DETAILS:  When given the necessary information about the morphology of a language, AMPLE will analyze each word in a text and break it into morphemes. AMPLE is oriented to the "item and arrangement" approach to the description of morphological phenomena. It can handle nonconcatenative phenomena only indirectly. AMPLE works together with STAMP (OPAC 15) for Computer-Assisted Related Language Adaptation (CARLA). It can also be used in conjunction with ITF (OPAC 17) for publishing glossed texts in interlinear form.

Interlinear Text Formatter

SUMMARY:  Interlinear Text Formatter

DETAILS:  ITF (Interlinear Text Formatter) is a set of TeX macros for typesetting interlinear texts. These macros can format an arbitrary number of aligning annotations with up to two freeform annotations. Programs are provided with the ITF package for converting output from IT or AMPLE into the format required by ITF. The ITF TeX macros can be used with either TeX 2.9 or TeX 3. A LaTeX style is provided as well as the plain TeX formatting definitions.

STAMP

SUMMARY:  Morphological transfer and synthesis for adapting text to a related language

DETAILS:  STAMP works with AMPLE (OPAC 12) to adapt text from one language to another (closely) related language, a process known as "Computer-Assisted Related Language Adaptation" (CARLA). STAMP provides morphological transfer and synthesis for words analyzed by AMPLE. The result is, at best, a rough draft suitable for editing by a competent speaker of the target language.

TonePars

The TonePars program augments the AMPLE morphological parser program to allow for modeling an autosegmental approach to tone.
