Linguistics Databases explains the increasing use of databases in linguistics. Specifically, the works presented in this collection report on database activities in phonetics, phonology, lexicography and syntax, comparative grammar, second-language acquisition, linguistic fieldwork, and language pathology. The volume presents the specialized problems of multi-media (especially audio) and multilingual texts, including those in exotic writing systems. Various implemented solutions are discussed, and the opportunities to use existing, minimally structured text repositories are presented.
