SIL’s Toolbox for Field Linguists

I have added SIL’s entire software “catalog” to my blogroll. SIL offers quite a number of useful tools for language acquisition/study. Worth a look if you are interested in that sort of thing. Of particular note is Toolbox (The Field Linguist’s Toolbox). It is tool that helps with building a lexicon of terms in a language being studied (among other things). I’ve seen a number of other interesting applications and tools there.

    I hadn’t realized that they were still supporting Toolbox — though I suppose I’m not surprised. Converting a Toolbox/Shoebox lexicon to FLEx is an unpleasant affair…

      Haven’t looked at FLEx. If starting from scratch to build lexicon and word formation rules, you would suggest using it over Toolbox, then? Does FLEx support the same (or similar) interlinear parsing?
