    The GAFAWS Position Analyzer uses the algorithms documented in Joseph Grime's Paradigm book.  It can take a list of words broken into their affixes and produce an affix position chart.  The input can be a text file, from FieldWorks (version 6.0 or version 7.0), or an AMPLE ANA output file.

  • SFM2WEB

    SFM2Web is a Python3 program that converts materials encoded using SIL's Standard Format Marker format (see a very brief description here) into web pages. The program can convert a lexicon, interlinear texts, Bible books, a multilanguage phrasebook, and language lessons, etc. into xHTML pages with formatting determined by cascading stylesheets (CSS).

    These web pages may then be copied to a web server for publication to the Internet or to an intranet. But these aren't the only uses...

  • TAMS Analyzer

    TAMS stands for Text Analysis Markup System. It is a convention for identifying themes in texts (web pages, interviews, field notes). It was designed for use in ethnographic and discourse research.

    TAMS Analyzer is a program that works with TAMS to let you assign ethnographic codes to passages of a text just by selecting the relevant text and double clicking the name of the code on a list.

  • FieldWorks Data Notebook

    In the FieldWorks suite of applications, Data Notebook was the first major product released, and it's probably the most polished. DN and FLEx have a similar look and feel, but DN is simpler (fewer "moving parts").

    As you experience various cultural events, you may want to jot down some notes on paper, but even so you should type up the event as soon as possible so that when you or someone else reads it much later, it will make sense. You should probably also mark the event write-up in DN with metadata and all relevant OCM codes before considering the write-up to be complete.
