ParaTExt Lexicon Extraction Tool

No votes yet

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.

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.

SFM2WEB

No votes yet

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 for the web pages. They can also be viewed on a local computer to view and/or check one's own work. Or they can be sent to a dictionary

RegExPal

No votes yet

RegExPal is a utility that works alongside of ParaTExt to do powerful search and replace on scripture text.

  • It lets you see your "find" go to work as you build it (it's dynamic).
  • It let's you see problems with your expression while you are typing it letting you know by a blue highlighter when it is invalid or not yet complete (because more of the expression is required).
  • When you do a replace you get to see a before and after view of the "replace" (one at a time) so you can see if it is working the way you want it to.

WeSay

No votes yet

WeSay helps non-linguists build a dictionary in their own language. It has various ways to help native speakers to think of words in their language and enter some basic data about them. The program is customizable and task-oriented, giving the advisor the ability to turn on/off tasks as needed and as the user receives training for those tasks. WeSay uses a standard xml format, so data can be exchanged with linguist-oriented tools like FieldWorks. Team members can collaborate via USB flash drive, email, and via network connections.

Audacity

No votes yet

An audio editor that runs on all major platforms. It is oriented more toward music than phonetics and has only limited analysis tools. However, it can do noise reduction and has some useful editing tools, including the ability to modify individual samples and to change the amplitude envelope.

Toolbox

No votes yet

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.
