Title: Toney: Software for Phonetic Classification
Submitter: Steven Bird
Description: Toney is a free software tool that supports classification of spoken
forms into phonetic categories. Use it to manually sort linguistic
forms into clusters, then listen to all items in a given cluster in
order to hear any outliers. It is ideal for use in early elicitation
tasks, in which the linguistically salient phonetic categories are not
yet clearly established.

Toney uses specially formatted Praat TextGrid files and corresponding
audio files. Unix, Mac, and Windows distributions are available,
along with sample datasets.
