Purpose: To lay the foundations for a cyberinfrastructure for linguistics.
The e-Linguistics Toolkit (ELTK) is a Python library for working with linguistics data. It is a key component in the e-Linguistics project. It has the following functions:
As such, the toolkit is meant to facilitate a cyberinfrastructure for the field of linguistics. That is, it is meant to create a pathway for data interoperability in terms of encoding, format, and content. In order to achieve data interoperability, significant manipulation (transformation, validation, and merging) of original source data is required. Finally, the ELTK seeks to leverage NLP techniques to serve the whole of linguistics.
We would like to gratefully acknowledge the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities for their support in developing these tools, specifically for the following grants:
