Course Information:
FieldWorks Language Explorer (FLEx) is a linguistic database for lexicographical and text data collection and analysis.  In this workshop, we will cover entering texts, adding words to a lexicon  directly and by means of glossing text, adding additional information to lexicon entries, linking audio or picture files to words or sentences, sorting/filtering/bulk editing entries, printing out interlinear text, exporting a dictionary for printing via collateral tools such as LexiquePro or Pathway.  We will briefly discuss import from Toolbox data, collaborating with other users of FLEx or WeSay by means of LIFT, and collecting words according to a semantic domain template.
