Linguistic LingField(s):  Language Documentation

Query:   SIL International has developed a website, ScriptSource,, which provides comprehensive information about the world's scripts, characters and languages. We are developing a new feature for ScriptSource which involves documenting the graphemes that are used to write languages and which phonemes they correspond to, and we need your help!

Currently we have acquired grapheme and phoneme information for English, Spanish and Nepali. We would like to include data for several lesser-known languages before we add the feature to our website. If you are familiar with the orthography for one of these languages, we would like to invite you to contribute information about its graphemes and phonemes.

We will send you a LibreOffice spreadsheet template on which you can enter the graphemes and phonemes; to help you, we will include instructions and a copy of our English and Spanish data to show how the data should be formatted. All appropriate attributions will, of course, be included when the information is published on our site.

Since we are hoping to publish this data in early July, we would like to receive any submissions in the next month or so. If you are willing and able to help with this endeavour, please email me at for further information.

Many thanks for your help with this!
