  • ParaTExt Lexicon Extraction Tool

    Utility that extracts the word forms, morphemes and their glosses from the lexicon.xml file generated by the project interlinearizer in ParaTExt and converts them into a Standard Format file that can then be imported into a Fieldworks database.

    The glosses can be in more than one writing system, but the receiving Fieldworks project must already be configured for those writing sytems before the import is begun. 

    If the resulting SFM file is importing data into an Fieldworks database that already has data, then the possibility of having duplicate headwords is very likely.

  • Pathway

  • FLEx (FieldWorks Language Explorer)

    FieldWorks consists of software tools that help you manage linguistic and cultural data. FieldWorks supports tasks ranging from the initial entry of collected data through to the preparation of data for publication, including:

    • dictionary development
    • interlinearization of texts

    • morphological analysis
  • Phonology Assistant 3

    This program keeps track of phonetic data either typed directly in or drawn from one or more data sources (Toolbox, Fieldworks Language Explorer, Speech Analyzer files with transcriptions). If sound files are included in the source data, the user can listen to them directly in Phonology Assistant. PA has many analytical features, such as

  • Speech Analyzer

    Speech Analyzer is a computer program for acoustic analysis of speech sounds. You can use it to do the following tasks:

    • Perform fundamental frequency, spectrographic and spectral analysis, and duration measurements.
    • Add phonemic, orthographic, tone, and gloss transcriptions to phonetic transcriptions in an interlinear format.
    • Perform ethnomusicological analysis of music recordings.
    • Use slowed playback, repeat loops and overlays to assist with perception and mimicry of sounds for language learning.
  • IPA Help

    This program is designed to help the user learn to recognize, transcribe, and produce the sounds of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA).

  • Dictionary App Builder

    Builds a customized app from dictionary data for Android tablets and smartphones. You can take a lexicon or dictionary from FLEx or WESay or Lexique Pro, and build it into an app. The app contains all the data, it does not require internet access to work.

    The app can contain pictures and audio links, and can permit searching and browsing for words. 

    Apps produced by Dictionary App Builder can be distributed via BlueTooth or microSD cards, or uploaded to an app store.

  • LingTree

    LingTree

    LingTree is a tool to produce linguistic tree diagrams. The user keys in a description of the tree, processes that description, and LingTree shows what the tree looks like. The tree can be saved in PNG and/or SVG file formats so that it can be included in papers or web pages.

    An alternative way of describing a LingTree description can be found at http://www.hirtfamily.net/lingtree/webapp.py.

    LingTree runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and...

  • CARLA Studio

    CARLAStudio is a program that you use both to model languages and then to put the model to work parsing texts and adapting texts to another language.

  • Toolbox

    Toolbox is a data management and analysis tool for field linguists. It is primarily aimed at editing lexical data, and for parsing and interlinearizing text, but it can be used to manage virtually any kind of data.

    If you have experience with the Field Linguist's Shoebox, you can think of Toolbox as an enhanced version of Shoebox with a new name. It is fully compatible with Shoebox. You can install Toolbox and use it just as you used Shoebox, with virtually no difference. Because Toolbox is an enhanced version of Shoebox, it is sometimes referred to as Shoebox/Toolbox.
