Subject: Ask-an-Expert System: Digitizing Language Documenation

Dear LINGUIST List Readers,

We are very happy to announce our Ask-an-Expert system!

As part of the E-MELD School of Best Practices in Digital Language
Documentation, we have assembled a panel of E-MELD advisors with technical
expertise who have volunteered to help fellow linguists follow recommended
practices in digitizing language documentation.

If you have questions about conversion of legacy data, audio and video equipment
for field recording, archival file formats, Unicode fonts, or similar issues,
this is the place to ask them:


The E-MELD School of Best Practices in Digitizing Language Documentation
also provides the following: detailed explanations of archival,
presentation, and working formats for different digital media, case studies
that survey best practices implemented on legacy data of typologically
diverse endangered languages, access to internet-based tools developed by
E-MELD for linguistic analysis and character input, and an extensive
searchable bibliography on all aspects of the digitization of language
documentation. If you are a linguist interested in preserving language
documentation in ways which will endure, please visit the School:


Yours sincerely,
Susan Hooyenga
Research Assistant, E-MELD
