The LINGUIST List is dedicated to providing information on language and language analysis, and to providing the discipline of linguistics with the infrastructure necessary to function in the digital world. LINGUIST is a free resource, run by linguistics students and faculty, and supported by your donations. Please support LINGUIST List during the 2017 Fund Drive.
Endangered Metadata for Endangered Languages Data (E-MELD)
The E-MELD School of Best Practice is a rich compendium of this information, and includes a module that focuses on:
- Case Studies
- a Classroom in which users can learn about standards
- a Reading Room
- a Work Room
- a Tool Room
- an Ask an Expert facility that provides answers to questions that linguists may have
The aim of the School is to guide the linguist from data collection in the field to digitally archiving the data and descriptions in a stable respository where they can be easily stored and retrieved by researchers worldwide.
