Welcome to The ODIN Project Area

The brainchild of Professor William Lewis, ODIN, the Online Database of Interlinear Glossed Text, harvests IGT from the internet to facilitate linguistic research. As a part of the GOLD project, ODIN is currently being integrated with the linguistics ontology so that users may search for items using GOLD terminology.

ODIN has successfully been migrated to a new, permanent location on a server owned by LINGUIST List. This new server was set up purposefully to provide a home for ODIN, assuring its availability as a community resource for years to come.
