E-MELD School of Best Practice


Work Room

The work room is intended to be a place where linguists can actually work with their data using the technologies taught on this site. Unlike the Tool Room, which offers links to software which you can download and use on your own machine, the Work Room offers you access to online facilities which make use of the E-MELD servers.

Here you can create Open Language Archives Community metadata for a language resource, format it using a variety of stylesheets, download it in XML format, and/or make it available to OLAC search facilities. You can format also enter lexical data into the FIELD database for searching online or subsequent downloading as an XML file. Shortly you will be able to map your markup terms to a general ontology of linguistic concepts, thus ensuring their longterm intelligibility.


This site is continually under development. Your feedback is most welcome.
