Query:   The MA students in our Syntax I and Phonology I will have iPads to use
in their courses this semester. They'll be using them to read papers for
the course that are available in PDF format, but we would like to make
even better use of the technology if possible. It seems to me that the
iPad touch interface could be used to create Apps for doing things like
constructing trees, reordering and testing OT constraints and things
like that. In my searches thus far, I haven't found any such Apps, so I'm
turning to this list: does anyone know of Apps for the iPad created
specifically to do or teach linguistics? Does anyone have experience
using more general iPad Apps to do things that could be useful in an
introductory syntax or phonology course? I will of course compile a list
of any resources I hear about and repost it to the list.

thanks and best,
Tom McFadden
