Parser and Writer for Syntax
The Parser And Writer for Syntax Starter Kit is affectionately also called PAWS.
As the name of the starter kit indicates, the Parser and Writer for Syntax (PAWS) has two purposes and four outputs:
This tool makes it much easier to see the results of syntactic parses produced by the PC-PATR program (http://www.sil.org/pcpatr/). For each sentence, it shows the interlinear result and the syntactic tree. When one clicks on a node in the tree, it also shows the features at that node and the rule in the PC-PATR grammar file.
It is a .Net version 2.0 program so it requires a Windows operating system that has .Net version 2.0 or higher installed on it.
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 Liinux operating systems.
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.
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 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.
This keyboard works well and is well documented. It allows you to type IPA in unicode (rather than in one of the outdated encodings), which means that you can type IPA into nearly any modern program that supports unicode. It is set up to not interfere too much with typing regular text, since with unicode it is no longer necessary to switch back and forth between encodings/fonts/keyboards.
